These artisan glass pieces are individually created with a zero waste philosophy in mind by Lotte`, sole artist and owner of Happy Hollow Glass in Austin, Texas.
Each up cycled shell casing has either been gifted to the studio by local friends or I may have personally hand-picked it in the desert of Belen, New Mexico. I consider myself an avid rock-hound and simply could not resist these beautiful brass findings out there! I knew they’d come in handy – eventually!
The glass bullet in this piece is golden amber glass with pure silver fuming that add nice metallic variations.
This is a 30-O6 shell casing with various rings and hoops attached.
I’ve soldered a copper clasp directly to each firing cap for a solid metal to metal connection.
Glass bullets fill the entire length of each casing creating a very realistic weight. Each ‘bullet’ is then attached with high quality jewelry glue in the cavity of the casing, transforming these up-cycled – found objects into beautiful, quality – keepsake pendants and ornaments!
An adjustable suede cord necklace is include with each gift. (color may vary)
