Edge of Ember Jewelry: Making Philanthropy Beautiful

Edge of Ember Jewelry: Making Philanthropy Beautiful

EDGE OF EMBER’s brand of philanthropy is a prime example of how fashion and accessories can
provide sustainable employment, market access and most importantly, create social change in less
fortunate countries. Every collection is meticulously handcrafted by local artisans in developing
Asia. 10% of our proceeds goes towards the philanthropic venture of the brand, The Ember Project,
which directly funds charity projects that focus on women and children in the local communities
of artisans that the brand works with.

The first collection, SARAT (the Khmer word for “beauty”) features handmade jewelry
pieces from Cambodia, Indonesia and Vietnam.  All three of our bestsellers – the Dylan
earrings, Blair necklace and Padma earrings are all individually handcrafted in Cambodia.

The matte gold plated geometric studs and spikes are made from raw brass bombshells
rescued from Cambodian land. The local artisans that we work with are all part of the
Rajana Association, a fair trade organization that strives on creating jobs and promoting
talent for the disadvantaged.

Some of our bolder jewelry includes the Astor bangle and the Anika bangle; both pieces
are made in Vietnam, where local artisans use natural buffalo horn to delicately create
exceptional jewelry. The organic material of the buffalo horn, adorned with a freshwater
pearl accent and plated spike embodies a raw, ethnic touch with a subtle hint of femininity.
