Bullet Earrings-Etched Zigzag Lines with Black Patina


Stock Level: 1

Product Information

These statement earrings are made from a used 45 Auto bullet casing then etched with a stacked zigzag line design. A black crystal dangles from the bullet end just beyond a filigree "skirt" making the earrings about 2-1/2" long.

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 also added a black patina to make the etched design really stand out.

I buff this 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 necklace is individually etched, so yours may look slightly different than the one in the picture. 

These earrings great with matching necklace, N116! (The necklace is sold separately).
