From War to Peace recycles copper from disarmed nuclear weapon systems to create a remarkable alloy called Peace Bronze, from which we hand-cast stunning jewelry and art for those who share our commitment to a more peaceful world.
From War to Peace is a uniquely American company. The copper we use was originally mined in Montana, then used as the cabling that carried launch codes to Minuteman III Nuclear Missiles in the American midwest. Thanks to disarmament and recycling, that copper now helps launch peace in the 21st Century.
All From War to Peace jewelry design, casting, finishing, assembly and packaging is done entirely in the United States. All findings (chain, cord, earring hooks, etc.) we use in our creations are also made in America.
We recycle everything, making the old newly useful. Our Peace Bronze is made from exclusively recycled material. Even our silver and gold dipped pieces are coated with entirely recycled metals. Our packaging is made from 100% recycled materials, our labels are printed with soy-based inks, and the rare plastics we use are plant-based and biodegradable.
20% of From War to Peace profits are dedicated to peace and social justice organizations committed to transforming our world.
