Announcement   Welcome to Anette Wachter/30CalGal Collections

As a member of the US National Rifle Team and professional competitive shooter I have a lot of used brass lying around. At a certain point you can't reuse it so I thought I would up-cycle it in to unique bullet jewelry. I also love mixing materials together. Lace, leather, metal and crystals work together beautifully in wearable art for my "non-bullet" line of designs.

Please see "Policies" for any questions on shipping etc. - Jewelry is made to order. Please allow 2-3 days for your order. Thanks!

For more information on my competition adventures please visit my website at www.30calgal.com

**A portion of all sales goes to NW Parkinson's Foundation

I bought this as a gift for a friend who is a gun enthusiast and enjoys her time at the range. I love how absolutely well made this is, the picture doesn't even do it justice. Fast turn-around and would buy from again in the future. I cannot wait to give to her. Thank you!

About

Passion of a sport inspired jewelry

Being a member of the US Rifle Team I have to load all of my own ammunition to ensure perfect accuracy for my precision shooting. After several firings the brass is not usable and has to be given to a recycle facility. I decided to use that brass for jewelry. I started making pieces only as gifts and I would donate items to the prize tables of matches. Soon the line caught many more eyes and what started as a hobby has turned in to a business for me part-time.

I have the brass cleaned in large tumblers with walnut shell. The shine is beautiful. I use some or all parts of the brass cases and design jewelry using a variety of metals, PMC, leathers, lace, pearls, crystals, you name it. I have clasps exclusive to my line made with 308 case heads.

My favorite pieces are my Battle Beads Bracelets. Steel beads are hand knotted with Satouche cord in many bright color options. The clasp is made with a 308 Winchester case head. A portion of sales from these will be donated to SOWW (Special Operations Wounded Warriors). In my competition world I have many friends that have served our country. I always wanted to be a support to that community somehow. SOWW is an amazing organization. I also contribute to The NW Parkinson's Foundation. A disease that took my father's life.

Many of my pieces are subtle "bullet" jewelry. Most will not know until they look closely at the jewelry. They are just beautiful and fun to wear. I personally wear and test all of my designs. My best sales come right off of me!

I work out of my home studio. I have to compete for space on my workbench between loading ammo for my sport and making jewelry.

Thank you for your support!
