The Brave Collection is a jewelry line that uses traditional Cambodian metalwork techniques with brass, silver, and gold vermeil.
The collection is handmade by Cambodian artists who are disabled or come from underprivileged backgrounds. Artists are paid above-average work wages, and given health benefits and stipends for their children’s education. In addition, 10% of profits are put toward the empowerment of women against human trafficking in Cambodia.
Named in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2016, Brave Collection’s founder, Jessica Hendricks Yee, was invited to the White House for President Obama’s speech on ‘Emerging Global Entrepreneurs.’
