Have you ever wondered what happens to material from shuttered nuclear weapon facilities? Well a company called From War To Peace turns weapon material into beautiful jewelry. Here are just a few of their pieces:

Their Mission (from the website):
From War to Peace is dedicated to recycling weapons of war into peaceful symbols of beauty and function. We turn bombs into beauty, hate into love, and war into peace. Here at From War to Peace, we recycle metals from disarmed nuclear weapons systems and use it to create a wonderful alloy we call Peace Bronze. With it, we cast jewelry and other art dedicated to creating a more peaceful world.

We believe that war is failure, and that peace is triumph. At from war to peace, starting with one weapon at a time, we hope to see a demilitarized world in our lifetime.

If you're looking to get a one-of-a-kind piece, From War To Peace is the place to find it. Not only do they sell jewelry, they also carry wine bottle stoppers, tree ornaments, and bottle openers.
