Inversion Earrings

Sophisticated. Stunning. The Inversion Earrings are a go-to pair when dressing up a casual outfit or fully glammed out. Handcrafted by artisans in Cambodia with the Rajana Association, a nonprofit focused on sustaining traditional craft and providing business skills to these talented artisans, who transform symbols of war into beautiful jewelry. They melt down brass bomb casings, following their demining then recycle them into jewelry—wearable symbols of hope, progress, and peace.
