Brass Archetype – Making Something Beautiful of Bullet Shells

Brass Archetype

“Bullet Shells and Shiny Things” is the focus at Brass Archetype, a jeweler who specializes in partnering bullet shells with differing materials … often “shiny” Swarovski crystals, to make unique jewelry.

We’re excited to welcome Brass Archetype to the Oak Brook Artisan Market at Oakbrook Center on Sat & Sun, Oct 5-6, 2019. This 2-day outdoor market showcases the Midwest?s finest artisans in fashion, food, home goods + art.

Brass ArchetypeThe one-of-a-kind bullet shell jewelry is made from shells that come from numerous sources including police stations and shooting ranges. Brass Archetype partners the various calibers by drilling through them and including them in a variety of designs. Some of the jewelry creations are bullet shell heavy while others just have a hint of brass.

Brass Archetype aims to change the narrative that is often associated with bullet shells. They want to turn the story of bullet shells on its head by making something beautiful and visually interesting out of them.
