one of a kind etched bullet necklace with recycled watch gears

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! I hand-etched the casing with an intricate flower mandala design, then hand-cut a small oval window on the front of the casing, then inserted a clear vial inside. This design features vintage parts and pieces from old watches inside. Finished with a faceted chinese writing stone point. Full pendant measures approximately 2.5 inches in length and is very lightweight. On a 27 inch long brass chain. This design is versatile enough to be worn by either sex.

Chinese Writing Stone (also known as Chinese Letter Stone or Porphory) is a limestone matrix with andalusite crystals that appear as a delightful pattern, resembling Chinese characters. Like a snowflake, its unique patterns make each stone beautiful and unique. This stone is found at the Yangtze River Valley of the Hunan Province of China, and also at the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. Chinese Writing Stone connects us with the earth and makes us more aware of the ancient that is present in all of us. It is a stone of reaffirmation. It helps one to accept and adjust to change, accept responsibilities and stimulate thinking and creativity. This is a very intuitive stone. It is an excellent stone for dreaming, promotes peaceful dreams and assists one into a dream state. Chinese Writing Stone can help one form clear thoughts and reach goals. It assists in relationship and strengthens your commitment to them. Chinese Writing Stone provides strength for emotional issues.
