Altered Bullet Rings

These Seemingly Cute Accessories are Made from Real .45 Ammunition

— July 17, 2013 — Unique
This may be one of the few times that you will see cute .45 ammunition, as these deadly rounds are normally used for shooting. The 'Colt .45 ammunition ACP Bullet Casing Ring' has been blinged out and puts a positive spin on something that is normally viewed as negative.

The .45 ammunition bullet casing has been crafted into an attractive, eco-friendly and one-of-a-kind ring. The bullet casing has been welded to a brass plate and a Swarovski colored crystal has been inserted in the center where the primer used to be. The ring portion is made from a high quality sterling silver that can be customized to any size.

The .45 ammunition rings have been handcrafted to look like a small flower, perfect for the lady in your life that loves her guns while maintaining her feminine appearance.
