What Inspired Rick to Make Shotgun Shell Jewelry
With 3 top products from the collection!
We have come across tons of jewelry artisans ever since the time we knew the handmade industry. But Rick’s shop on Etsy is different. This is primarily because On Target Jewelry makes amazing handmade jewelry designs out of shotgun shells. In fact, some of the pieces are so beautiful that you’ll hardly recognize the rugged material that goes behind it’s making.
On our recent chat, when we asked Rick the inspiration behind such wonderful designs, here’s what we got to hear,
“I started making shotgun shell jewelry when I found several empty shell casings in my attic. These were vintage shells from the 1970's. After a little research online I discovered many options for their use. Since I am a goldsmith & have been one for 25 years I decided on making jewelry with them. I started with earrings which were selling well to bracelets & to a complete line. I use some of the same techniques as I would on a piece of fine jewelry.”
