This is an extraordinary piece of jewelry. Beautifully crafted, powerful...a striking, graceful, sensational silver bangle. 

peaceBomb is an unprecedented endeavor. This bold bracelet is made by Project peaceBomb/Article 22, an organization that aims to rebuild and clear out undetonated bombs in Laos, a landlocked nation in Southeast Asia...and the most heavily bombed country per capita in history.

Over 30% of the bombs dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War did not detonate. At the current rate of removal, it will take an estimated 800 years to clear the unexploded ordnance.

For each peaceBOMB product sold, Project peaceBOMB donates funds equivalent to the cost of clearing 1 to 15 square meters of land.

Made with aluminum war scrap metal and shaped by human ingenuity and brilliance, these bracelets have created an opportunity for artisan families to generate income, tell their stories...and share legacies of our common history.

Seriously...Bravo!!

Totally Smitten!
