Bullet Crystal Necklace-Etched-Hibiscus with Rainbow Patina


This product is currently out of stock

Product Information

This edgy but romantic statement pendant necklace is made from a used 270 ammo casing then etched with a hibiscus/floral design. A clear crystal teardrop dangles from the bullet end below the filigree "skirt" reflecting shimmery colors as it dangles.

The necklace features an antiqued gold colored rolo chain and lobster clasp making the length of the necklace approximately 22".

The etching process is rather involved, because the casing has to be completely cleaned then carefully hand stamped with the design before placing in the etching bath. The casing is then scrubbed clean and the highlights are burnished. I add a rainbow effect of patina in burgundy, purple and blue to make the etched design really stand out and give it a little more interest.

I buff the finished casing and most of my etched items with Renaissance Wax to help preserve the patina finish. To continue preserving the finish, I recommend you keep your etched item in an air tight container or a zip lock plastic bag and avoid swimming or showering with it on.

The wax will eventually wear off, but you can maintain your item's appearance by applying a thin coat of car wax and buffing lightly with a soft cloth.

Please note that each item is individually etched, so yours may look slightly different than the one in the picture.
