beachcombers bullet necklace
This one-of-a-kind necklace features a recycled bullet casing, which was sourced from a private shooting area in the woods. This area is littered with bullet casings of all shapes and sizes and trash. I'm doing my part to clean up the Earth and make beautiful jewelry from it! I hand-etched the bullet with an intricate filigree design, then hand-cut a rectangular window on the front of the casing and even smaller circular window on the back, then inserted a clear vial inside. I then filled the vial with hand-picked tiny seashells from the beaches of Florida. Finished with a raw quartz point. Full pendant measures approximately 3 inches in length and is very lightweight. The 27-inch long brass chain is decorated with matching beadwork in complementing brass tones.
Quartz is a common stone, but a powerful one. It is mainly used in healing, as it provides a naturally balanced, solid-state energy field. Quartz is thought to bring harmony and balance. It enhances energy and thoughts and is powerfully protective. In early times. when all things were thought to be parts of a greater living consciousness, the quartz crystal was believed to synchronize the individual and total conscious with that of the heavens and advanced life forms.
