Violence is never pretty, but the implements of destruction themselves can possess their own twisted allure. Much like the Gun Reclamation Project rehabilitates firearms into jewelry, Israeli designer Adi Zaffran Weisler refashions spent bullets into one-of-a-kind rings. Dug up from various firing ranges, the misshaped bullets resemble organically formed jewels, forged from metal, fire, and gunpowder.

A NEW TRAJECTORY

When you separate a bullet from its original context, it becomes a wholly different object—one that can be admired for its beauty rather than its intent to annihilate. The distorted hunks of metal, according to Weisler, can be recast as “bejeweled objects” that can hold their own aesthetically. “Every bullet,” he adds, “retains memories and traces of the journey it underwent, from the moment it was fired until it was picked up.”

When you separate a bullet from its original context, it becomes something you can admire for its beauty.

Currently a student at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Weisler has several design projects on his docket. Still, the refashioned rings are by far his most provocative work. They’re not available in stores just yet, but we’re hoping Weisler will roll something out in the coming months.

    Actually, I rather prefer to keep them contextualized. For me, a bullet is an implement of protection and safety, so the act of wearing it on one’s finger for me would be serve as an expression of empowerment. YMMV.
