This all stems from my husband Karl, who bought me a new 22 rifle and thought shooting the metal sheets would be great fun while creating a new look. Well sure enough I became a better marksman plus I make some wonderful jewelry with my own style and touch. We have had lots of fun trying different calibers of bullets and seeing how each hole affects the metal.
It does require lots of sanding and polishing because of the rough edges made from the bullet. I’ve hunted in Pennsylvania, Wyoming, Montana and Colorado and have the largest Mule Deer mount in the family even though our son begs to differ on that.
Taking care of your copper jewelry: This piece of copper jewelry is matte finished and oxidized so it will keep its patina that it has. I polished the edges and if you want to shine them up use a polishing cloth that we have available in Accessories.
Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminum, It is rare and valuable in finer grades and has been prized as a gemstone and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. Although much turquoise jewelry is sleek and modern, many US consumers are familiar with the traditional jewelry of Native American peoples such as the Pueblo, Hopi, Zuni, and Navajo. People interested in Native American arts and crafts frequently collect this stylized silver jewelry.
Turquoise improves the mental state overall by increasing all of the following positive mental characteristics: serenity, creativity, empathy, positive thinking, sensitivity, intuition, happiness wisdom all of which result in a calmer state that leads to greater self-realization.
