Rooted in the spirit of the materials.
Crafted jewellery made from destructed illegal firearms and recycled PET. Made in Sweden. Changes is Arild Links third collection, the next level of making a statement. It's no longer enough with just the look of fashion; Changes is rooted in the spirit of materials which makes it an act of consciousness rather than just a show of support. The designs are made from destructed illegal firearms and recycled PET, shaped into beautiful jewellery embodied with history.

About the materials Humanium
Humanium Metal & Non-Violence Humanium Metal is a statement beyond any other precious metal. Created from destructed illegal firearms taken off the streets and melted into a resource for a new purpose. There are millions of illegal firearms, paradoxically Humanium Metal is to this date rarer than gold. All our designs made from this resource are labelled with the symbol Hu. They are embodied with history, and by wearing one you take a stand against violence and contribute to security for people living in areas affected by high levels of crime. Arild Links has a long term commitment to support the Non-Violence project. Throughout the years Non-Violence has educated and trained more than 8 million youth, teachers and sports coaches around the world in how to solve conflicts peacefully. Each of our jewellery sold with the Non-Violence symbol finances violence preventive education to people in the risk zone and contributes to a more peaceful world.
About the materials PET
We use PET-rope from responsibly recycled PET-bottles which we’ve given a new purpose instead of polluting the environment or burnt, releasing CO2 into our atmosphere. Recycling is a conscious act and a powerful symbol to encourage all of us to re-purpose the resources already existing rather than producing new material.
