ARGH! I am in the trial and error process of figuring out how to make these. Your design is much simpler than mine though. I was trying to make it all in one piece from a single shell with no joints. the shell is too brittle though. Well done! In my design I was just going to use the shell base as the ring decoration.

thats what I tried to do in the beginning, didnt work to well so I just went with this idea. I think it might work though if you softened the brass first, I didnt realize till now that you can do that but oh well

I tried heating it with a blowtorch but it ruined the brass finish. I was going to try it with a steel shell and keep the patina. I like your design a lot better though in general.
Nice to see ammo jewelry other than a bullet hanging from a chain. I like that you used a 357 to top it off.

If I made one I would have the tip of the bullet in place of a stone.

Excellent job!!!
