Khmer Handcrafted Artisan Eggs and Jewelery

This craft uses textiles bought in local markets to cover wooden beads or duck eggs that have been carefully cut open, cleaned, and glued back together again. Up to 10 coats of varnish of various dilutions are applied to each bead or egg, along with repeated sanding to smooth out the surface. The results are an array of high quality bead necklaces, bracelets, and eggs that are both beautiful and unique.

This project has brought pride and happiness to the HIV-positive women, who enjoy the company of each other and the admiration of people in their communities. Indeed, where once they were stigmatized, the women now are role models to others who must cope with HIV/AIDS and poverty
