Bio: I create handcrafted items including Beautiful Bullets, Tic-Toc Jewels - Steampunk Jewelry, Crystal Creations, Elemental Designs, and Mid Century Retro items. I like the idea of being able to recycle vintage items and turn them into something entirely different. I find this style of design unusual and intriguing. I am always looking for old and interesting things to add to my inventory that can be made into jewelry or personal items.
In 2010 I began a project that I now call Beautiful Bullets. I have designed over a hundred different styles and types. I use recycled bullet shell casings, metal filigrees, Swarovski crystals, natural gemstones and vintage glass.
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.
