It's been so long since a submission, I know- and so long since everything! Life is flying past my eyes at hyperspeed :noes:
I must apologise for the lack of horror photography recently- I'm so desperate to get some more done, but my days seem so packed these days I have no time! Fingers crossed I can get a little time soon <3

This necklace has been inspired by the Smashing Pumpkins song 'Bullet with Butterfly wings'. It was something of a collaboration between myself and *AphexPhoton. He's been doing a lot of metalwork recently, and he was lovely enough to lathe me a present in the form of some machined solid brass bullets! I fell in love with it- as I've has a bullet pendant since I was a teenager and to have one that took so long for him to make was awesome! I asked him to do some more for me to make into pendants, and since I've has this idea in my head for a long time now, I bought in some gold-plated butterfly wing charms and silver-plated chain to create a rather conceptual statement piece. Hope you enjoy it too :)

SOLD
Want one? Let me know and I'll make another

A similar concept to my bullet with angel wings pendant:

maybe it isnt horror but somehow the idea of a bullet with butterfly wings.. death (bullet) + fragile tool for flying (butterfly wings) .. the death made out of iron broke the wings of fragile life :tears: ;P :aww: :sun: like it and also the photograph of your work is well taken ;) :sun:

Simply beautiful. To think something as cold as a bullet could be so heart warming. Brilliant!
