Filigree Turquoise and Howlite Bullet Jewelry Pendant

  • $ 3250

I wrapped a recycled 9mm silver bullet shell casing with an antiqued silver filigree, attached a vintage turquoise petit point cabochon, and added a turquoise howlite gemstone point. This comes with a 24 inch silver plated rope chain.

An original Beautiful Bullets design. I have been creating bullet jewelry since 2009 and have designed over one hundred different styles and types. I use recycled bullet shell casings, metal filigrees, Swarovski crystals, natural gemstones, and other items.

Part of the proceeds is donated to charity. 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.

Turquoise was among the first gems to be mined, and while many historic sites have been depleted, some are still worked to this day. Turquoise is often recovered as a byproduct of copper mining operations, especially in the United States. It has long been prized by Native Americans and holds strong symbolism for them.

Mt. Taylor in New Mexico, also known as Turquoise Mountain, is called “Tso odzil” by the Navajo. Legend says that this sacred mountain was fastened to earth with a stone knife and covered with a blue sky blanket decorated with turquoise.

Turquoise can fade in bright sun and is affected by the sweat and oil from your hands. Turquoise protects against accidents and is considered a traveler’s stone. It is good for increased awareness and verbal skills. Some say it brings good fortune and renewed health. It symbolizes honesty and self worth. Turquoise works well for a vision quest. It is said that turquoise will change color when worn by someone who is ill, and this is why it is known for taking on the characteristics of the person who owns it.

It is mined mostly in Iran, the Sinai Peninsula, China, Mexico, and the Southwestern United States.
