"What a beautiful idea to turn something so negative into something positive" -Emma Watson
Made from our signature transformed metal and finished with sterling silver, these earrings are effortlessly chic, super lightweight and comfortable to wear.
These earrings are the definition of sustainable: environmentally, they are upcycled from shrapnel and debris, culturally, they are made by fair trade Laotian artisans who developed this craft technique in the 1970s, and socially, men and women work side-by-side at homemade earthen kilns in their gardens.
- Stone polished, accented with sterling silver cups, posts and ear nuts
- Comes complete with ARTICLE22 story card and handwoven black silk pouch
Emma Watson wore these earrings and told the story of our jewelry on The Ellen Show as part of her Beauty and the Beast The Press Tour, promoting sustainable and ethical fashion brands.
As always, each piece gives back to support traditional Laotian artisan livelihoods, village development, community endeavors and further de-mining efforts.
Your purchase contributes to MAG (Mines Advisory Group) to safely & expertly clear some of the 80 million unexploded bombs contaminating land in Laos.
