A beautiful chest length piece hand-crafted from a 50 caliber shell casing. This necklace combines an elegant form with durable shell casing brass to create a look that is both rugged and refined.
Each piece is one of a kind and hand hammered from repurposed bullet casings.
Necklace measures 20" with an additional 2" extender.
*As this piece is 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.
Bought this necklace recently and was a big hit! It is very well made, just the right size and length. Couldn't be happier!!
Beautiful necklace, and my friend absolutely loved it. It arrived to me in a timely fashion once I had placed my order, and I am glad to support the wonderful mission at S&P. Only one suggestion: If it's not prohibitively expensive, maybe include a small card with the S&P mission statement info so anyone receiving a gift will know such a great cause is supported by their gift. One of the main reasons I chose to buy my friend's birthday gift from S&P was due to their work with veterans and veteran causes. Since I was shipping it to her and couldn't be present when she opened it, I printed out S&P's mission statement and other FAQs from the website to include with the necklace so she would know right away what a wonderful company this was. Not only did she appreciate the knowledge, but she says she plans on buying several Xmas gifts through S&P because of it. Food for thought in case this idea is plausible for your operation!
I purchased the necklace as a gift, and liked the necklace very much, and so did the recipient. My one issue was the packaging was difficult to wrap as a gift. If I had one suggestion for an awesome product with a great message, it would be to consider offering an option for gift packaging. I appreciate what this company is doing,and look forward to ordering from you in the future.
Easy to purchase, shipping was quick, and love supporting the mission of this company!
