12-07-2010 A Phoenix from the Ashes of War

It’s hard to believe that remnants of war and death can lead to art. And yet turning used bullet cases from war torn countries into jewellery is a way of inverting our expectations, proving that harmful things can be taken from its original purpose and context, reworked and given a whole new purpose. This provocative work has recently emerged from young designers like Adi Zaffran Weisler from the Bezalel Academy of Art and

Design in Jerusalem and 17-year-old former refugee from LiberiaLovetta Conto who now lives in the United States. Lovetta astonishingly takes the spent casings used in her former country’s civil war and turns them into beautiful jewellery, promoting peace and harmony in place of chaos and destruction.
