These earrings are the perfect complimentary piece to the Pursuing Peace necklace and bangle. With brass reclaimed from unexploded landmines making the base for these earrings, we love that something so beautiful has come out of something originally intended to harm. These earrings are delicate and elegant and can be worn day or night to striking effect.
Cambodian Artisan Vanna likes to listen to music whilst crafting these. She has an amazing gift for intricate carvings, which is amazing considering a childhood accident where she fell into a vat of tar and burnt her hands. Working for Saught is providing a future for her and her family.

It’s hard to think of anything beautiful coming from a Cambodian landmine. But Singaporean label Saught is producing a line of jewelry made from disguarded weapons. After starting promising legal careers, Saught (now known as Covenant jewelry) co-founders Pamela Yeo, Ng Sook Zhen and Adeline Heng turned their back on the corporate world to pursue this social enterprise. A trip to Laos inspired them, where local people use war remnant’s to make cutlery. Joining forces with non-profit organisations, Saught, a sustainable jewelry brand, buys scrap metal, then trains local Cambodia people turn it into jewelry, creating long term jobs with hope. Their business promotes peace and sustainable development in post war countries.
