Reimagined Components: Real 22 Caliber spent bullet casings and clear quartz point earrings on vintage sterling silver hoops.
1888's Take: "It's a common saying that opposites attract and while I'm not so sure that always works for people, it definitely strikes a cord when creating art. It's hard to think of two more polarizing symbols than a bullet and a quartz crystal. But their symbolic juxtaposition feels strongly like just another example of the duality that is the foundation of our existence. When there is power there is healing, where there is healing there is power and so on and so on..."
Bullets symbolize a strong resolve and preparedness for life’s challenges, but 1888’s favorite and intended meaning is that the bullet you wear is the one that was intended for you. Wearing it around your neck gives you back the ability to control your own destiny & doubles as a symbol of protection.
Quartz crystal is ideal for strength, healing, emotional clearing, meditation, and lucid dreaming.
After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
