Lustables: Bullet Casing Petal Necklace

Beauty turns up in the strangest places.

I love that when you first glance at this necklace from VivaTerra, it looks so sweet. Don’t get me wrong, it is, but the fact that the brass casing are actually remnants from a rifle range gives the sweetness a little edge. The resourceful designer and metalworker who finds the brass bullet casings that she re-purposes as glittering jewelry hammers flat the shells of fired rounds, then assembles them into a loop of cascading flower petals strung on Japanese tasso silk.

Wear this and it’s like a powerful amulet to shoo negativity away.
