Article22 offers chic, sustainable jewelry

It can often be difficult to find responsibly-made products that are both stylish and reasonably priced. But if you’re in the market for sustainably-made jewelry, look no further.

According to InStyle, jewelry line Article22‘s collaboration with model and actress Angela Lindvall offers the perfect solution to your sustainable jewelry needs. Based in Brooklyn, the line “works with artisans in Laos that have been upcycling aluminum scrap and other metals since the Vietnam War to create handcrafted, sustainable designs that benefit local communities,” reports InStyle.

Even drawing its name from “the 22nd article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that everyone has the right to social security,” InStyle says that the creation of one 14-karat gold necklace clears over 120 square feet of land — land that continues to contain “unexploded cluster bombs from the war.”

As far as Lindvall’s collaboration goes, InStyle says her 10-piece collection offers a selection of bracelets, earrings and necklaces. Called “Peace Begins in Me,” InStyle says that some of the items feature Lindvall’s personal motto: “I Am Love. I Am Light. I Am Peace.” Pieces start at $99 and cap at $1,248.
