ARTICLE22 jewelry is made from two of the most abundant metals on earth, aluminum and iron, which were generated inside collapsing stars. The iron found in our blood is the same that forms the tanks and weapons of the global arms industry. Mother Earth and the elements that course through our veins unite us all. Yet humans expend more than double forging these materials into a business of destruction instead of the business of creation - of jewelry. Civilians in conflict zones of the present like Ukraine and past like Laos are also united by the threat of lasting unexploded ordnance. Each REVIVAL pendant contributes to MAG (Mines Advisory Group).
