Da Bomb

This intrepid wrap bracelet combines youthful energy with a courageous, save-the-world attitude. The unisex bracelet features a metal "coin" that was hand cast from reclaimed scrap aluminum by artisans in Laos. The charm is laced onto a long, waxed cord that you secure in place by wrapping it around your wrist several times, creating a unique look.

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, contemporary 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. Charm made in Laos; assembled in New York, NY.

“Jewelry has personal significance. We see [ours] as having that significance. It is a piece of history. It's a symbol of people turning something bad into something good.”

Elizabeth Suda originally traveled to Laos to research the country’s colorful textiles. But once there, another local craft caught her attention instead: spoons made by Lao artisans, using scrap metal salvaged from some 270 million bombs that were dropped on the country during the Vietnam War. Believing there was a broader market opportunity to be explored, Elizabeth challenged local artisans to expand beyond kitchen utensils and use the bomb metal to make jewelry instead.

“Jewelry has a personal significance–from an engagement ring to a men’s watch that might be a gift for graduation,” Elizabeth says. “We see [our] jewelry as having that significance. It is a piece of history. It’s a symbol of people turning something bad into something good.”
