Introduction: A Steel and Sea Shell Pendant

About: Awesome Gear I've designed myself.

Until recently I thought all bullet shells were made of brass. Apparently you can also find shell casings made of steel. I cut down this .45cal casing, drilled holes, and fitted a piece of polished abalone shell in it. You can read more about polishing abalone here. It especially looks cool in sunlight. Overall It has a 12mm diameter (a penny is 19mm).

    I. NEED. THIS.
    excellent work mrballeng!

    Well, you've done it again - created another beautiful piece of artwork using bullet casings, of all things. I just hope you don't get caught snagging the casings from crime scenes! :-)
