A bullet

Filmmaker: Anna Hakobyan


“A bullet is a piece of jewelry if you want to see it as jewelry”.

The idea of making jewelry out of bullets came to Artak Tadevosyan when his daughter asked him what a bullet was for. Artak, a professionally trained painter and sculptor, did not want to tell her what bullets are really used for so he decided to turn an instrument of war into a symbol of peace. His journey resulted in a unique artform, which transforms the physical and conceptual energy of a weapon by turning it into a thing of beauty, an ornament to be worn. 

Today many people wear jewelry made from bullets and each of them is motivated by their unique desire to spread the important message of peace.
