Product Details
  • Every so often we find a non-USA, handmade product with a story we feel compelled to share. As our first handmade, humanitarian focused maker, Article22's story brought tears to our eyes. We are proud to showcase their jewelry which is handcrafted in Laos from Vietnam War shrapnel left behind during America's 'Secret War'. Please read full story below, and know by purchasing Article22 you are helping to clear bomb littered land.
  • Hand cast re-purposed military grade aluminum from Vietnam War era bombs, plane parts, military hardware and other aluminum scrap
  • Measurements: .75" Coin and charm on a 20" sterling silver curb chain
  • Care: does not have to be removed in water and can be worn constantly. Metal does not tarnish. With wear, each piece becomes uniquely yours and may acquire a polished patina from the natural oils of your skin.
  • Handcrafted in Laos and finished in Vientiane or New York 

  • Maker's Story
    Article22
    Ban Naphia, Laos
    Founded in 2010
    Through jewelry Article22 takes a negative and transforms it into a positive.  Handcrafted from Vietnam War shrapnel left behind during America’s “Secret War” in Laos each piece helps clear at least 3 square meters of bomb littered land.   Together Laos artisans craft each piece utilizing traditional methods like earthen kilns to melt the metal and wood and ash molds to form the jewelry. Transforming the weapons into jewelry helps to preserve local craft, clear unexploded ordnances, and most importantly make the land safe again for the people of Laos.
