Silver Elephant CuffDesigner: JJ Caprices Bazaar
This silver cuff was handmade in Cambodia. The artisan who made it is part of an organization called Rajana. It was founded in 1995 by the British NGO Southern Asian Outreach in order to provide opportunities for young people to learn marketable skills, earn fair wages, and climb out of the cycle of poverty. I was in Siem Riep, Cambodia in 2016. One of my all time favorite travel destinations.
- Polished Silver Bangle With 3 Elephants Super Imposed On The Top.
- Over .5" Wide.
** The additional photos is of me discovering the intricate, multi-step process to create silk thread that starts with an itty bitty worm and becomes a lovely organic dyed piece of art that we get to wear! Some of the patterns they use are hundreds of years old and take months to make just a scarf!!! China may have introduced silk to Cambodia...but their work rivals the best in the world (and all done by hand!!).
