Buy Back the Bombs

Project PEACEBOMB supports jewelry made by Laotian artisans from American bombs dropped during the Secret War in Laos (1964–1973). The pieces produced in conjunction with the project combine ingenuity and Vietnam War–era shrapnel and scrap metal to create bracelets that tell a story about the legacy of their creators. This shared history incorporates the resourcefulness and positive approach these villagers have taken since the 1970s, when they began upcycling war remnants into spoons for their local market.

PEACEBOMB jewelry is now distributed all over the world. Each purchase funds individual artisans as well as village development, and helps to finance, as well as raise awareness about, bomb-clearing efforts.
