Nickel silver and golden brass Federal .38 special caliber bullet casing is deeply etched in a simple barbed wire pattern and strung on a 3mm leather cord for a simple but very effective look - looks great on men and women! This necklace is ideal to wear alone or for layering with others!

Totally inert, the brass casing is pierced for the leather cord to pass through. The polished quartz point is firmly inserted into the casing and is held in place with epoxy. Two spent .22 caliber casings are used as end caps for the leather cord. the brass casing has a patina applied to enhance the etched detail.

Bullet casing and quartz pendant measures approximately 1-3/4" long and 3/8" in width. Quality Greek rolled leather cord measures a substantial 3mm in diameter and is 16" in length with a 2" extender to 18". Perfect gift for the shooting/hunting enthusiast or spouse, policeman or woman, armed forces and anyone with a penchant for the unusual!

Each bullet casing is tumbled for several hours to ensure that no gunpowder residue remains.

The 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 toothpaste 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. This necklace is airport friendly - the primer clearly shows a'dimple' indicating it has been fired and the two holes for the leather to pass thru render it incapable of being fired again.

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