I've been making jewelry out of spent bullet casings this year. Most of them have been made with the casing intact. I've recently expanded my ideas and designs into incorporating hand sculpting into each casing.

I started off with skulls.


As always, comments and critiques appreciated!

I have made a listing for the skulls at my blogspot store. The other designs will be listed in the upcoming days. They are a brand new creation, something I am considering my own signature item (I've not seen anything like them). Because I am currently unemployed, I'd like to keep the details to myself for now. After I've had a few events, made some sales, and established myself; I would definitely consider a tutorial. Stay tuned!! Thanks for understanding!

I really appreciate the comments and feedback! It took quite a bit of trial and error (and broken pieces) to get here!

I've deleted some of my pics. I have received a VERY negative message on my blog. I'm so sorry that some people cannot just appreciate my creations, without DEMANDING to know how I did it. For all of that have been positive, I do really appreciate it, and thank you for understanding. This has never happened to me before, and it hurts my heart that some trolls have infiltrated craftster.
If I had my way, I would delete the entire post. Sorry for being a downer, I was actually proud of my work and happy to share it; until I was attacked on my blog.

This makes me very sad. You should be proud of your work. I really liked them. You know if you ever have a problem here on C-ster with other members then tell the Mods. I know from experience they do everything they can to keep this a happy place that's good for sharing. We have great Mods and generally a great community, but sometimes even here rotten people can come. I'm sorry that someone made you feel that way. It's not what this community is for at all!

I really liked the TX one. Sad I can't see it anymore.
