Repurposed Weapon Accessories
Fonderie 47's Jewelry is Made Out of AK-47 Rifle Parts

Fonderie 47 creates beautiful accessory pieces out of repurposed materials from AK-47s. That is bound to get the attention of fashion lovers, weapon connoisseurs and everyone in between, especially since these accessories are not obviously made out of guns. Instead, Fonderie 47’s designs are stylish and sophisticated.

As stated on Fonderie 47’s site, “Through artistry, craft and courage, beauty is born and its light fills the void of fear and violence with prosperity.” Fonderie 47 specifically uses AK-47 rifles confiscated from the Democratic Republic of Congo and turns them into custom rings, earrings and cufflinks by combining the parts with gold.

What is more admirable, however, is Fonderie 47’s mission to significantly reduce the number and impact of AK-47s in Africa. By buying one ring, Fonderie 47 will finance the destruction of 75 rifles in Africa, purchasing a set of cufflinks destroys 100 rifles and a pair of earrings eliminates 500 rifles.
