The President of our local Art Society is a 'Red Hot Pistol Packing Momma', although she modestly claims that she's not a bad shot with a small bore rifle.
She has a big competition coming up and urged me to make some more jewelry with the shell casings so she can sell some. The request included silver and gold.
There were some nickel casings so here are the silver batch.
Earrings with handpainted porcelain rounds.
I even made a bracelet in pink! and I am soooo not a pink girl.
Making something in gold was my next challenge. With all those bright brass cases I decided to go all out and OD on gold!
After all that bling needed something to sooth me, so resorted to my favourite - aged brass.
