A caption on the Sohza website says, “Imagine a world where every bullet was melted down and turned into art.” This art, this jewelry, is handcrafted by women breaking out of the oppression of human trafficking, AIDS and social injustice. “Each piece has a story to tell,” and you can watch them here.
Sohza is founded by a talented friend of mine. Sohza is dusting off these exquisite pieces of art, and showcasing each one on Sohza, where 15% of the sale of each item goes to a charity to help women in need here.
