Article 22, Laos
Article 22 celbrates stories of positive transformation and makes real impact through jewelry handmade in Laos.
Peacebomb, their first collection, is jewelry handcrafted by traditional Laotian artisans from Vietnam War shrapnel and other debris. A virtuous circle, each peace helps MAG (Mines Advisory Group) clear unexploded ordnance, making land safe and providing new metal to artisans to craft more original favorite and new designs.
The alchemy of transforming negative into positive, aluminium shrapnel, melted and recast in wood and ash molds, becomes beautiful and meaningful jewelry.
