Humanium Metal a special kind of metal that’s probably the world most valuable metal. There are hundred of millions of illegal firearms in the world. As a result, someone is shot every minute. Armed violence is a global epidemic. Humanium Metal is a new material made of recycled metal from gun destruction programs. The metal is melted and moulded into units, which Arild Links refines and handcrafts jewellery’s design to become something more than just a nice decoration.
We’re not here to change the world. We’re here to make our small contribution and make a stand that metal should be used around your arm instead of making arms.
Let’s make an impact.
Arild Links you directly with the non-profit organisation IM Swedish Development Partner, which retrieves and melts down illegal firearms from conflict torn societies, turning them into Humanium Metal. We then buy the metal, refine and craft it into designed products worn around your arm.
Your purchase of a product with Humanium Metal makes a difference: a portion of funds made from the sale circles back to the society where the firearms were originally collected and supports the victims of armed violence.
Humanium Metal initiative has been rewarded several times, like Eurobest, Grand Prix for Good and Fast Company, World Changing Ideas Winner. The Humanium Metal initiative by IM has been endorsed by many international peace advocates.
