Graceful Lotus Necklace
The lovely pendant featured on this refined Graceful Lotus Necklace is handcrafted from recycled brass bomb casing in Cambodia. Decades of conflict have left the countryside of Cambodia littered with bombs. One by one, the makers at our fair trade partner Rajana cut and shape brass bomb casings, safely cleared by a demining agency, into jewelry-wearable statements of peace and progress.
