If I got my girlfriend one of these, she would likely want to punch me:
For this work, I collected spent bullets at a firing range and made jewelery out of them.
The rings that were created remove the bullet from its original function and they surprisingly turn into a bejeweled object and emphasize the beauty and aesthetics of the bullet when it is distanced from its surroundings
Every bullet retains memories and traces of the journey it underwent from the moment it was fired until it was picked up.
I have two concerns when it comes to this particular art/jewelery:
- Some of the corners look incredibly sharp.
- Am I the only one extremely conscious of lead poisoning? At the very least I’d say those should have a clear coat on them for safety reasons.
