Trying to come up with ideas is sometimes daunting. But yesterday was so much fun! I cannot even start to explain how fun it is to take something that has been used and breathe new life into them. I had these .38 SPL casings (that have been fired) sitting around for at least a year. I was supposed to make this belt buckle with them but I was lazy so they just sat there on my shelf. Anyway yesterday I decided I needed to make some jewelry for men. Not for ANY man either...but for those badass men out there.
Like my friends husband which I shall not name! hahaha!!!
Some guys really look good in necklaces and bracelets. The guy that comes to my mind is Johnny Depp. He can Rock just about anything!!!
Need I say more?
I sawed, cut, filed, and wire wrapped yesterday for about 3 hours. Did you know that the .38 caliber casing shell is different thickness throughout?
And here is what I came up with...
They can be used as a single charm or take two to make earrings! However I envision these babies on a leather cord. I believe Johnny Depp would look good with one of my charms. Maybe I should send him one! Hehehe!!!
My Etsy shop is up and running now so come on in and take a look around. Who knows what you will find!
I have also been working on some TinSkulls because they are so much fun to make!
They reflect!!! I did not realize it until I took this picture. Of course they reflect...I used an old LA license plate! hahaha!!!
Have a great Tuesday everyone!
