Mayamiko is bringing you a selection of jewelery from ARTICLE22 - an organisation on a mission to transform negative into positive. Each piece of jewelry is a modern heirloom – a piece of history upcycled from Vietnam War shrapnel and scrap by artisans in Laos. Proceeds from the collection clear some of the 80 million unexploded bombs there.
One bangle clears 3m2 of Laotian landscape
Hand cast re-purposed military grade aluminium – PEACEBOMB Al metal includes Vietnam War era bombs, plane parts, military hardware and other aluminium scrap

Comes complete with ARTICLE22 Story Card and handwoven, reusable Cotton Pouch
The Story Bangle is the first piece and represents the virtuous circle formed by ARTICLE22 - the more jewelry worn and shared, the more land cleared, the more material for artisans to make more jewelry and build their lives.
Engraved with the story, dropped + made in Laos, each bangle is also marked with the company namesake, ARTICLE22, inspired by the 22nd Article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states everyone’s right to social, economic, and cultural security and the free development of personality.
Each piece gives back to support traditional Lao 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.
Hand cast re-purposed military grade aluminum – our PEACEBOMB Al metal includes Vietnam War era bombs, plane parts, military hardware and other aluminum scrap.
East meets West. Each PEACEBOMB Al piece is authentically handcrafted in Laos and finished in Vientiane or New York.
PEACEBOMB Al does not have to be removed in water. Metal does not tarnish, rust or leave discoloration on skin and has been tested to determine that it is NICKEL FREE.
Bangles can be worn constantly. With wear, each piece becomes uniquely yours and will acquire a polished patina from the natural oils of your skin.
Women's sizing at Mayamiko is in line with UK standard sizing. When in doubt or if in between sizes, we recommend going one size up, as the fabric is not stretchy and the fit is snug. You are also welcome to contact us for individual product queries, and we'll do our best to help!
