Article 22 Peace Silk Mantra Bracelet

 

“Peace is the bomb.” That’s the motto of Article 22, a jewellery company named after the 22nd article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Using the metal from unexploded landmines and melted-down shrapnel left behind in Laos during the Vietnam War, they transform the negative into a positive with their line of ethically created jewellery.

 

Article 22’s Silk Mantra Bracelets are designed with everyone in mind. Their blue silk string bracelet emphasizes that peace is a state of being. Each piece is a modern heirloom – an actual piece of history re-designed with intention – that inspires action towards our future, individually and collectively.
