one of a kind bullet necklace with yellow banded onyx
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 crystal termination design, then hand-cut a rectangular window on the front of the casing and inserted a clear vial inside. This design features a tangerine quartz point, nestled within a brass spring inside. Finished with a faceted yellow banded onyx 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.
Banded onyx is a variety of chalcedony, micro-crystalline quartz, which exhibits straight, parallel banding. Onyx is an excellent mineral for initiating modes of centering and aligning the total person with the higher power. It can be used to get rid of grief, enhance self control, stimulate wise decision making and encourage happiness and good fortune. It harmonizes the physical with the spiritual and helps alleviate fears and worries and eliminates confusion and nightmares. It's used to provide glimpses of that which lies beyond and activates one's memory of one's roots and reality. It aids in one to become the master of their future.
