A rich golden brass 40 caliber bullet casing is deeply etched in a rustic swirl pattern,then paired with a sparkling faceted crystal and ornate cap for a surprisingly vintage look! The deep etching on the bullet casing also provides texture as the pattern is raised rather than scratched into the surface.

Bullet and Crystal Pendant measures approximately 2-1/8 inch long and 7/16" in diameter. A lightweight long n short link chain necklace, 30" in length, is the perfect compliment and closure is a simple lobster clasp. A large antique brass 16 gauge (11mm in diameter) jump ring attachment means you can use this pendant on your own chain, leather or collar!

Perfect gift for the shooting/hunting enthusiast or spouse, policewoman, armed forces and anyone with a penchant for the unusual! You would never know this was a bullet casing unless you looked closely!

Each bullet casing is tumbled for several hours to restore a new-like shine then etched, a patina is applied to enhance the details and then the casing is tumbled again ensuring that no gunpowder residue remains.

The etched bullet casings used in my jewelry are protected with a coating of Renaissance wax. With use, the wax will eventually wear off but you can restore the shine with a small amount of brass cleaner and then maintain with a thin coat of car wax.

Some bullet casing jewelry is sometimes coated with a lacquer but I have never seen this be successful over a period of time and it always seems to flake off leaving an uneven finish. As with all brass jewelry, do not wear when in the shower or swimming.

If you like the warm brown tones of aged brass, do nothing - it all depends on what finish you like best!

All of the bullet casings I use have been collected from a professional firing range. I have been told that my etched bullet jewelry is airport friendly - no primer is present and the casing has enjoyed a lengthy acid bath!

Bullet casing and crystal necklace ships in a cotton lined box suitable for gift-giving.
