Emi & Eve, jewels for peace





The jewels made of brass (gold-plated) made with the projectiles found in Cambodia: Cassandra Postema realizes them with her Emi & Eve ♦ ︎
Cassandra Postema graduated in Fashion and Textile Design at Central St. Martin College, London, the starting point for a brilliant career in the design world. But a trip to Cambodia changed her perspective. In fact, she decided to combine design with social responsibility, helping the difficult life of the local population. Cassandra’s talent, therefore, expressed itself in a very different jewelry brand, with which she transforms bombs and bullets into earrings, bracelets and rings. The jewels are sold under the brand that is based in London Emi & Eve and are made by Cambodian artisans, who use brass, metal recovered from anti-mine technicians and fishermen. In this way Cassandra Postema supports the Cambodian community.
The jewels, divided into four families, are then gold-plated and enriched with precious stones, also from Cambodia, natural and untreated. This is why they are also different from each other.
Cassandra, in Greek mythology, was a priestess with the gift (or the condemnation, according to the points of view) of foresight. She saw the future and announced misfortunes, unheard. Quite the opposite of Cassandra Postema, fortunately: she wants a better future. Lavinia Andorno
