I just ordered this piece of jewelry. I can’t wait to wear it and keep peace in Cambodia close to my heart. Here is the description of the leather bracelet I purchased:
"People. Culture. History. The inspiration for this collection draws upon these three factors. The jewelry is constructed from brass and wood, simple materials and found in abundance. The warm aesthetic touch of the wood represents the people of Cambodia and the rich Cambodian artistic culture which uses wood to make traditional musical instruments. The brass, attained from melted landmines and bombs, is the history of Cambodia, while the bent metal represents a change in state of affairs from war to that of peace. The polished area represents a new beginning in Cambodian history, a history that the world wants to see written."--- 1 year ago --- 1 note ---
