BRASS & BULLET JEWELLERY

TRANSFORMATION THROUGH DESIGN

Saomao’s first started using bullets to make jewellery with after visiting a village in Oudong where farmers were using old munitions to make cowbells. The NEUTRALISED MUNITIONS are transformed into meaningful pieces of  jewellery and fashion accessories to promote peace and expresses an ideology of transformation through overriding the negative and destructive actions of the past….. A positive statement of a country moving forward

In 1969, the United States began a four year long carpet-bombing campaign in Cambodia where more than 2.7 million tons of bombs were dropped on the country, about 30 per cent of the country’s population was internally displaced, as many as 500,000 people died as a direct result of the bombings and hundreds of thousands more died from the effects of displacement, disease or starvation. After their victory in 1975, the Khmer Rouge oversaw a period in which another two million Cambodians died from execution, hunger and forced labour.
