one of a kind etched bullet necklace with dried flowers

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 vine design and hand-cut a small oval window on the front and inserted a clear vial inside. This design features dried flowers inside. Finished with a faceted snowflake obsidian point. Full pendant measures approximately 2.5 inches in length and is very lightweight. Finished with a 27-inch long brass chain.

Obsidian was valued in Stone Age cultures because, like flint, it could be fractured to produce sharp blades or arrowheads. Like all glass and some other types of naturally occurring rocks, obsidian breaks with a characteristic conchoidal fracture. It was also polished to create early mirrors. Though not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on humans, obsidian is used by some surgeons for scalpel blades, as well-crafted obsidian blades have a cutting edge many times sharper than high-quality steel surgical scalpels.

Snowflake Obsidian is a stone of purity. It balances mind body and spirit. Obsidian is a very powerful stone, one which reminds us that birth and death are simultaneously and constantly present one with the other, always as one. This is a stone that has always been associated with guardian spirits that watch over us, and is connected to protection on all levels. Snowflake Obsidian aids in clearer and more logical thinking. Carry this stone to keep others from taking advantage. This stone will reveal what needs to be changed in life to assist one in advancing.
