Materials

Paracord

   We use a variety of different colored cords for the necklaces, bracelets, keychains & zipper pulls. 

   Most of our paracord is sourced through Tough Grid, which makes the best paracord out there. They are also 100% Made in the USA, and their cord is rated at 750#, far superior to standard 550 paracord. They are Mil-Spec, and the real deal.

  Leather and silver chains are also available.  

Bullets

   Bullet Blossom pendants are made from Federal's Premium Law Enforcement ammo. This is a .45 caliber (+P) 230 grain "HST Tactical" JHP bullet. Yes, that is a mouthful, but it's worth it. It has a muzzle velocity of 890 FPS, and a muzzle energy of 400 F-P. 

    I also use 9mm HST rounds for bracelet charms (and necklaces on request), with both 124 and 147 grain loadings.  All Bullet Blossoms are truly unique; no 2 are exactly alike. 180 grain .40S&W HST Bullet Blossoms are now available upon request. If caliber is not specified, all orders default to 45ACP.  ... God's Caliber. 


Process & Treatment

   I fire the pistol underwater, in a ballistic test tank.  Physics creates the Blossom, which fully expands immediately, essentially turning the bullet inside out. I then treat the bullet front with a clear coat spray, sealing the lead core. Then I crimp back and machine the copper jacket "petals" on the back,  to make them smooth.
