Peace Project Earrings
Simple hoop earrings, handcrafted from recycled aluminium war scrap.
Handmade in Laos, village artisans melt down war scrap in traditional earthen kilns, using basic wood ash moulds turning a negative into beautiful meaningful jewellery.
Silver earring wire is hand made, wrapped with brass wire and a tiny brass bead.
Choose from two sizes:
Small 3.5cm diameter / Large 5cm diameter
A collaboration between Loom Designs and village artisans in Laos, to make a positive and peaceful change for the future.
Did you know?
From 1964 - 1973 approximately 270 million bombs were dropped on Laos by the USA.
An estimated 80 million UXO failed to detonate and still litter the land.
The Peace Project provides sustainable income to the metal artisans and training and employment to Hmong women who sew the fine traditional embroidery.
Loom Designs donates a further $1 from the sale of each item to COPE Laos, rehabilitating UXO survivors. Find out more here copelaos.org
