Inspired by the locals’ tradition of making farming tools and artefacts by recycling found bullets and bombs from more turbulent and destructive times, Ammo (short for ammunition) was founded in Siem Reap, Cambodia in 2013 by British designer Madeline Green. As a social enterprise, Ammo’s mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment, where young, disadvantaged and disabled Cambodians can realise their true creative potential. Through the vocational training program, Ammo employees learn specialist skills in transforming negative and precious metals into the authentic, ethical jewellery designs
