I loooove how these came out! Made with Swarovski crystals and small empty bullet shells...along with some pretty little charms and things.




The vintage cameo is sooo tiny - and really cute!


My personal favorite, but I'm partial to turquoise and anything with feathers Smiley


Accented with some random chains.

These are so awesome! I would love to attempt to make one of these except I wouldn't have a single clue as to where to get the empty bullet shells and I have so much on my plate right now. But out of curiosity and for my future crafting, where did you get the empty bullet shells?

What a great idea!  The dimensions of the shells work wonderfully with the crystals.

What a neat idea! I love the contrast between the softness of the accessories to the hard roughness that the bullet shells portray.
My boyfriend is a marine and I would totally wear this! Cheesy

I love these!  This would be a great gift for so many girls in my life.  Where did you get the bullet shells?  Did you have them because you actually go shooting or did you purchase them somewhere in particular?

To answer both of you, I actually found a whole bunch at a flea market...I didn't personally go shooting, at all, haha. There was just a huge bin of them at one table so I bought a handful thinking maybe I'll do something with them one day. Glad I bought them cause now I can't stop making bullet shell necklaces. These are just small ones though, I made some huuuge ones that have large quartz crystals ... I'll probably share those soon.

And thank you to everyone else! <3
