Matte silver-coloured earrings handmade in Ban Napia, Laos, from scrap metal (possibly including bomb casings, and mostly aluminium, making them extremely lightweight).
The base part of these earrings is about 3cm long and is designed to follow the shape of the earlobe. The dangle is 9cm long.
Available with posts or clips.
AUD$49 (price includes postage and handling for orders in Australia).

These earrings were named after Sompasong (also known as Loc), Kommaly Chanthavong's third and youngest daughter. Loc has worked with Kommaly's fair trade company, Mulberries, and has helped in the establishment of Wilderness Bazaar.
