one of a kind bullet necklace with raw carborundum
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 out of it! I hand-etched the bullet with an intricate flower mandala design and then hand-cut a small round window on the front of the casing and then inserted a clear vial inside. This design features raw carborundum specimens inside. Finished with a faceted amethyst point. Full pendant measures approximately 2.5 inches in length and is very lightweight. The 27-inch long brass chain is decorated with matching beadwork in complementing brass tones.
Carborundum is a manmade mineral, formed in the 1800s in an attempt to create diamonds, using electricity. It is the second-hardest substance on Earth, and while very rare on Earth, it is a common element in stardust and has been found in meteorites.
Carborundum is thought to be a master healer that shines light in all areas of your life, purifying mind, body and spirit. It is calming and gently grounding, known to relieve stress and its associated physical disorders and lift depression and melancholia. It helps absorb chaotic thoughts, encouraging intuition and discernment, enhancing the memory and increasing artistic and diplomatic skills. Carborundum allows for inner expansion in an orderly and organized manner, as if each individual cell has been allocated the same amount of space around it. In spite of the dark coloration of the stone, its general mood is light and happy.
