Article 22 Women of the World Pink Necklace
“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. Their “Women of the World Unite” Necklace celebrates the strength of women and women working together. Can you hear us roaring?
