one of a kind bullet necklace with tangerine quartz

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 casing with an intricate mandala design, then hand-cut a rectangular window on the front of the casing and inserted a clear vial inside. This design features brass and copper springs coiled together inside. Finished with a raw tangerine quartz point. Full pendant measures approximately 3 inches in length and is very lightweight. 27-inch long brass chain is decorated with complementing beadwork in brass tones.

Found in Brazil and Madagascar, Tangerine Quartz has a natural orange color and a sweet vibration. The orange color comes from the presence of iron in the cavity where they grew. Slowly, over time, water combined with the iron to create rust that permanently bonded to the surface of the crystals. The combination creates a wonderfully unique natural quartz crystal. Metaphysically, tangerine quartz stimulates one's creativity and sexual energies, blending them to enhance spiritual growth. The currents of these stones can trigger great bursts of creative power. Tangerine quartz can facilitate an upwelling of new ideas and inspirations from deep within the self, and these crystals can help one find the zest and energy to implement them.
