etched bullet necklace with labradorite

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 sacred geometry design and hand-cut a small round window on the front and inserted brass filigree inside. Behind the filigree, light-reflecting Swarovski bicones can be seen. A small polished labradorite cabochon, nestled within a brass bezel, sits in the center of the filigree. Finished with a faceted Egyptian quartz point. Full pendant measures approximately 2.5 inches in length and is very lightweight. 27-inch long brass chain.

Labradorite is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. It was discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770 who named it for the area. Lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms. 

A stone of transformation, Labradorite is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance.  It balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies.  Excellent for strengthening intuition - promoting psychic abilities.  Powerful in revealing the truth behind illusions, Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities, and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe.  It stimulates the imagination and calms an overactive mind, developing enthusiasm and new ideas.
