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 is polished with a light renaissance wax to hold its original color and shine longer. 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.
Sword & Plough is proud to donate a portion of the profits from all Initial Necklace purchases to Purple Hearts Reunited, which is a non-profit organization that returns lost or stolen military medals to veterans and military families at no cost. Through their work, Purple Hearts Reunited returns what is often the last tangible piece of a veteran to his or her family. With your purchase, you help fund the Purple Hearts Reunited service medal return ceremonies, which are an opportunity to share veterans' stories and honor their legacies.
