New Design – Bullet Jewelry
I like to make pieces employing upcycled components. I have seen where other designers have used bullet shell casings to make jewelry; so I decided to give that a try.
Each bullet was hand drilled before cleaning. While watching them soak, I had the idea of creating bubble blowers from casings. Then I figured that may be too controversial for the masses.
I then scrubbed the casings with paper towels and Q-Tips.
From there, I used the bullet casings as focal pendants for several necklaces.
I like the finished pieces. I was able to create a variety of statement pendants using various accent components and necklaces. I am excited to try a few bracelets, as well as a masculine necklace line.
