Autumn Orange Aura Quartz Filigree Pumpkin Bullet Jewelry Pendant
I combined a recycled 40 caliber silver bullet shell casing with a burnt orange aura quartz crystal point. I attached a dark silver filigree to the casing and then added a tiny vintage orange glass pumpkin jack-o-lantern cabochon. This comes with a 24 inch antiqued silver plated chain. A great pendant to wear for Fall and Halloween trick-or-treating.
Mystic or aura quartz is natural quartz crystal that has been laser heat treated with elements to add a rainbow color coating to the quartz. The orange color is created by bonding iron and platinum to quartz crystals with a heating process.
In the 1800s Halloween guisers or mummers in parts of Ireland and Scotland commonly used jack-o'-lanterns. They were carved with grotesque faces to represent spirits or goblins. October 31 to November 1 was known as Samhain and it was seen as a time when spirits or fairies were particularly active. Samhain is a celebration of both light and dark. The New Year begins on Samhain in Celtic tradition, but it also marks the end of harvest and the start of winter.
I have been creating bullet jewelry since 2009 and have designed over a hundred different styles and types. I use recycled bullet shell casings, metal filigrees, Swarovski crystals, natural gemstones and vintage glass. All of the bullet casings I use are recycled so please allow for variations and small imperfections.
I started my bullet jewelry line as a peace project, and I continue to donate part of the sale to different charities. I have sent donations to the Peace Corps, the Patriot Guard Riders, the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, and the USO. Thanks to everyone who has purchased one of these designs and made that possible.
