Netsuke Cat Tiger's Eye Brass Bullet Jewelry Pendant
A carved natural bone Netsuke style cat bead tops a recycled 25 caliber brass bullet shell casing with a tiger's eye point. The shell casing is wrapped with gold wire and another small tiger's eye stone is attached to it. This comes with a 24 inch gunmetal chain.
Tiger's Eye is said to help convert anxiety, fear, and obsession into practicality and logic. It increases confidence and is an aid to achieving clarity. It is beneficial when working with groups. Tiger's Eye is used for protection when traveling, and for protecting cars and other forms of transportation. It can enhance the ability to acquire wealth.
Netsuke are small carved sculptures, almost like buttons, that were invented in Japan in the 17th century. They were used as a fastener that secured the cord on the sash of a kimono, to hold a box filled with everyday items such as money, tobacco, etc. The word Netsuke is derived from the two Japanese characters "ne+tsuke" which means "root" and "to attach".
Cats represent independence, curiosity, mystery, and sensuality. In Ancient Egypt cats were worshiped as gods, and the Goddess Bast takes the form of a cat. There is magic and beauty in your life if you share it with a cat.
An original Beautiful Bullets design. 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.
