    Nice. I have done a few bullet related jewelry things too. By the way if you want to get a really good deep shine on the brass use some cardboard with the brass polish (brown corrogated seems to work best) instead of a cloth, it is very slightly abrasive and cleans them up to a high shine, then clean of the excess with a cloth. A quick squirt of clear aerosol varnish and you never have to clean them again
