ENGRAVED COUPLES WRAP BRACELETS SET OF TWO
When you're with someone you love, the whole world just seems like a better place. These playful pairs of unisex bracelets are not only a fun way to celebrate your perfect partnership, but they actually do make the world a little better. Each "coin" charm is hand cast in Laos from reclaimed scrap aluminum. They're illustrated and labeled with either "big spoon" or "little spoon", suggesting the closeness of two spoons nestled in a drawer. The charms are laced onto a long, waxed cord that you secure in place by wrapping it around your wrist several times.
The Laotian tradition of working with scrap metals began in the 1960s as the United States conducted an extended bombing campaign in their effort to contain Communism in South Asia. An estimated 250 million American bombs were dropped in the region over a 9-year period. Attempting to restore order in their lives, the Laotian people began gathering the discarded metal from mortar and flare launchers, spent ammunition magazines and more, and recast them into spoons and other domestic tools.
Now, the creation of these bracelets not only provides you with a unique, romantic accessory, but also continues to clear waste metals from Laos, while providing local crafts people with a sustainable income. Comes in a drawstring pouch with a card explaining the metal's history. Bomb charm made in Laos; assembled in New York, NY.
