How FD Bullet Jewelry got started.......
Hey y'all! My name is Mandie, the creator of FD Bullet Jewelry. People always ask how I came up with the idea to make bullet jewelry, so I wanted to tell the story of how I started making jewelry out of bullets. I was born on my Dad's 40th birthday, so we decided to go on a 3 week birthday trip to Alaska in June of 2016 and the entire second week I planned 3 fishing trips. Our first day out on the ocean, I felt sick the entire time. Sleeping, throwing up, and fishing, on repeat. But after a couple hours, I finally got a bite.
At first, I wasn't even sure if I had anything, until the deckhand yelled "keep reeling!" Then the adrenaline kicked in. Reeling normally, then eventually putting my pole up against the boat for leverage. I kept reeling, reeling, for what seemed like hours (but I'm sure it was probably like 10 minutes :) Before I knew it, even the captain looked excited. Then the captain motions to the deckhand and he pulls out a little .410 shotgun. The moment he pulled out that little shotgun, I knew it was going to be a big one. Finally, after 234 feet of reeling that monster up and a quick gun shot, the 80 lb. beast was gaffed into the boat. After that, the captain asked me if I wanted to keep the empty casing and I was like yes sir I do!
When we got back to Arkansas, my Dad helped me make a bullet ring out of the .410 shotgun shell they shot the fish with. After that, I decided made a pair of .380 bullet stud earrings to match my EDC carry pistol. And the rest is history.......... I have a passion for designing jewelry and sharing about guns and personal protection with other women! I am a proud supporter of the 2nd amendment as well as a concealed carry license holder for over 10 years. If you have any questions about concealed carry or a question about guns in general, etc..... shoot me an email and I'm happy to help answer any gun related questions you may have! Or if you're a woman who wants to ask a question in a safe environment with other like minded women, join my women only private Facebook group, Concealed Carry Divas.
The bullets and shotgun shells I use are authentic once fired bullet casings and shells. The best part is we fire most of these shells ourselves and others are donated to us by local gun stores and gun enthusiasts who don’t have time to re-load but want to recycle their brass. We have bullet jewelry and accessories for men and women and offer silver and gold designs. Most of my designs are from commonly used calibers but I am happy to make one of my designs with your bullets too! My bullet jewelry that is made with crystals come in over 30 different colors including the twelve birth stones. I have made custom ammunition jewelry orders for concealed carry holders, competition shooters, hunters, soldiers, police men and women and hundreds of second amendment advocates. We use the following calibers most, but we have several different calibers in stock so contact me if you want something different than 9mm Luger, .38 special, .357 Magnum, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .22 long rifle, .380 ACP, 12Gauge, 20Gauge, & AR15.
