"Make pendants, not bullets" with this unusual work by Los Angeles based jewelry designer Rebecca Spina. This necklace is actually cast from recycled bullet casings for the ultimate take on turning swords into ploughshares. Rebecca creates her designs through the method of lost wax casting. Each pendant is either hand carved or reproduced from an original antique piece, then cast from recycled bullet casings. This unique form of "turning arms into art" was developed by Rebecca's friend and mentor Robert Carranza, a 40 year vetran of jewelry design and metalsmithing.
