Story Bomb Cufflinks Sterling Silver
Inspired by a trip to Laos and learning about the Secret War, Elizabeth Suda, the founder of Article 22, was intrigued when she came across artisans who were melting US bomb metal to make spoons. After discovering that Laos still had 80 million undetonated bombs, Elizabeth had the idea to start a hand-crafted jewelry line that would transform old war shrapnel into modern jewelry. By purchasing Article 22 jewelry, you help clear land, pay artisan families at least five-fold of local minimum wage, and 10% of proceeds are donated to aid village development.
This piece tells our story of transformation from bombs into modern artifacts.
