Who made the earrings?

The social business Angkor Bullet Jewellery was started by Chantha Thoenun. His mother passed away when he was 4 years old and his father was killed by Khmer Rouge when he was 8. Chantha then went to live with his grandparents and at age 14, with the support from a local NGO, he went to train as a jeweler in Phnom Penh. After he finished his education, he worked for 10 years in jewelry design and jewelry making for an NGO, until he started his own social business in 2011 together with his wife Thearny Kol. They work with a home-based team of jewelry artisans and together they transform old Khmer Rouge bullet casings and bombshells into beautiful pieces of jewelry.
