Our Ammo Wear Story
I started working with my hands as a kid in my dad’s lawnmower shop where we often made our own tools and parts. I no longer repair mowers, but still enjoy creating things with my hands and making people smile.
I cut, filed and cleaned my early bullet stud earrings fully by hand, which took a long time. I still cut all bullet casing jewelry by hand, but over the months, I’ve had to become more efficient to increase inventory for gun shows.
All jewelry is made from spent (used) bullet casings. Primer cups are removed and the casings and primer cups are then thoroughly cleaned. The bottom of the casing is cut off, sanded and all sharp edges are removed before assembly. Any leftover scrap is then recycled, while the part I use is repurposed into Ammo Wear’s bullet casing jewelry.
