  • How to recycle a bullet bracelet. Bullet Jewelry - Step 1
    Step 1

    I built a little jig on my drill press to help hold the casing in place while I drilled small holes for the jump rings. (I should mention I washed the casings first)

  • How to recycle a bullet bracelet. Bullet Jewelry - Step 2
    Step 2

    I then linked up the casings on a way-cool repurposed chain that reminded me of the linkage that machine gun rounds are held together with.

I've been trying to find a way to use casings artistically -- this is such a cool idea that I may have to try it, too!
