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 raw tangerine quartz 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.
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.
