The Brave Collection was started in by Jessica Hendricks to celebrate bravery and empower women across the globe. All jewelry is handmade by talented Cambodian artisans who come from underprivileged backgrounds or suffer from disabilities. Mostly mothers, the team of artists work in a small studio in Cambodia, or from their homes while they care for their young children. All artists work in a free, fair and dignified work environment where they are paid above average wages and receive benefits such as health insurance and stipends for their children's education. Each piece is carved and woven by hand using traditional metalwork techniques with brass, silver and gold vermeil materials. The Brave Collection's goal is to provide job opportunities to talented artisans, exposing them to a global customer and collaborating creatively. Additionally, 10% of the company's profits are donated to fight human trafficking in Cambodia.
