These beautiful brass bar earrings are hand-crafted from a 50 caliber shell casing.
Each piece is one of a kind and hand hammered from repurposed bullet casings.
*As these earrings are made from solid brass, we do not recommend wearing in the shower/water
Meet the Artist:
Veteran and artist Shanna Rodenberg served eight years as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army. Upon returning from Afghanistan in 2005, she began to experiment with making jewelry out of spent ammunition. What began as a hobby to help adjust to civilian life has turned into a thriving career that we are thrilled to support!
Our jewelry is all handmade, so keep in mind that each piece will have its own unique character!
The brass has been polished with a light renaissance wax to hold its original color and shine longer, but because the jewelry is made from solid brass, it will develop a beautiful patina over time.
If you would like to maintain your piece's original luster, you can clean with a gentle cleanser like Flitz and polish with a soft cloth.
Theses are exactly what I wanted! I love dangly earrings and although I am typically a silver girl these are perfect! I have a few outfits that just look better with gold or brass and these were a great find let alone being a veteran owned company. I love them! They look great too with the matching necklace!
My experience was good. Shipment arrived in a timely fashion. Packaging was good. The earrings themselves are lovely and I am enjoying wearing them. I’m even looking forward to the “patina” they will surely acquire over time.
I really like the design of these earrings. My only complaint, and this is only me, is that they clink together while wearing them. The good thing is they're brass so it's not a high pitched noise and due to their design its something that can't be helped. That's the only reason I gave them 4 stars. Otherwise, they deserve a 5! I get lots of compliments on them.
It's always a pleasure purchasing from Sword and Plough. I bought the earrings to match with the bar necklace. The earrings and necklace arrived within a week and looked better in person than on the website. I especially appreciate that veterans receive a donation and that Sword and Plough are owned and operated by veterans.
Love the length. The earrings are beautiful. Would recommend them.
