peace bomb

Not just any bracelet, the Peace Bomb bracelet is made from reclaimed artillery metal dropped on Laos during conflicts in the late sixties and early seventies.  The bracelets (there are two styles and also garden-marker spoons) are made by local artisans and part of the buy back the bombs initiative to raise money for clearing unexploded ordnance and awareness to ban cluster munitions.  Purchase also supports local communities and independent artisans.  Yay!
