Perfect gift for the patriot, shooting/hunting enthusiast or spouse, law enforcement, armed forces and anyone with a penchant for the unusual! I do have a supply of almost any caliber so please convo me if you need something different.
Bullet and projectile measure 2-7/8" in length. Necklace is a 24" brass ball chain. Need a longer or shorter length or a keychain? Just let me know in the notes when ordering!
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 casing on this necklace or keychain is 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. Keychains that are regularly handled will more likely maintain their natural lustre.
Some bullet casing necklaces or keychains are 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.
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've been told that my etched bullet necklaces and keychains are airport friendly - the 'dimple' in the primer clearly shows the bullet has been previously fired and that no gunpowder remains.
Bullet casing keychain or necklace ships in a cotton lined box suitable for gift-giving.
