Article 22

Elizabeth Suda didn’t know what she was in for when she quit her merchandiser job at Coach to move to Laos and work with local weavers. Though that job fell through, Suda went to Laos anyway and witnessed something eye opening: local Laotians—whose villages were still littered with scrap metal from the Vietnam War—were melting rocket mortar down to craft spoons. This practical recycling sparked an idea in Suda to craft jewelry and link it to a global market. Thus, Article 22 and it’s inaugural line of jewelry, Peacebomb, were born.

  • Made in Laos
    Necklaces from the Peacebomb collection are handmade by Laotian artisans, and each one incorporates melted down scraps of bombs, aluminum, and other metals leftover from the Vietnam War. Each sale helps clear about 5 square meters of bomb-covered land, and proceeds from each fair-trade piece bring income to the artisans and the community.

  • Engraved in the USA
    Once the pendants are shipped backed from Laos, artisans in the States engrave them with cheeky sayings like “Let’s Spoon” and “Love Is the Bomb.”

  • Press Coverage
    Article 22’s story and jewelry has been featured in publications ranging from the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal to Vogue and Glamour.
