Wanna Win WON? Amber wins ‘bling blang’ bullet casing jewelry

When it comes to the shooting sports, we’re all serious here at The WON. However, we still like to have a little fun and sport our passion for shooting in different ways – on and off the range or hunting fields. That’s why we are so fond of Anette Wachter’s line of bullet necklaces.

Elegant … but edgy

Anette, who also blogs over at 30 Cal Gal, creates these unusual lifestyle statement pieces of recycled brass casing. After meeting and spending time with Anette, we can say she is like her jewelry – elegant, but edgy. Hailing from Seattle, this competition rifle shooter shows her class through her jewelry creations at Etsy.

This particular piece is made of a copper case, aka 2 ¾ inch pendant, covered in Swarovski rhinestones. Anette attaches a 30-inch gold-plated chain that comes with a lobster clasp, and then places each little masterpiece into a black padded jewelry box and ties it up with a ribbon.

Customers may choose the colors of rhinestones for their own special necklaces.

Retail is $42, with $5.25 shipping.

    I’d add bling to a holster and hearing protection earmuffs.

    mmmm bling…..I love bling! I can’t decide on any one or two things I would want to add bling to! Eye and Ears, yes! Range bag, yes! Love love love the jewelry! Love being able to add these kind of things that show my outdoor interests to everyday wear!!! Holster, yes! Gun case & pistol case, yes yes!

  • Barbara Baird says: July 5, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    For Kerri Roth: LOL. I’d love to bling out my bow release. Thanks a bunch! Feelin’ the love. Hmm

  • Robin Follette says: July 5, 2012 at 10:42 am

    I’d replace the glo-dot on my shotgun sights. Now wouldn’t a dot of bling drawn your eye to the right place?

  • Susan says: July 5, 2012 at 10:32 am

    I want a bling’d-out tiny revolver to hang from my rear view mirror in my car, or an emblem to mount to the car. I drive 90 miles a day to work and I want all the crazy drivers in California to think twice about cutting me off in traffic!

    I would like to see my iphone protector case blinged out with gun glistened bling!!!! I would also agree with above post about the sunglasses being gun blinged

  • Amber Forbush says: July 5, 2012 at 10:18 am

    I like the idea of the blingy ear protection and safety glasses!

  • Amber Forbush says: July 5, 2012 at 10:14 am

    I would like my entire pistol to be covered in bling! 🙂

  • Julia M says: July 5, 2012 at 10:06 am

    I would add bling to safety glasses – they are so boring!

  • Amanda Lynn Mayhew says: July 5, 2012 at 10:04 am

    I am not much of a ‘bling’ girl.. but that shell casing is a hot item for sure.

  • Susan says: July 3, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    I’d add bling to my jewelry collection to wear with my wardrobe, both on and off the range. And, I’d tell my friends how excited I am about bling, too. It’s very exciting to be able to wear what you love to do!

  • Debbie C says: July 3, 2012 at 9:44 am

    I would love to script my nickname, “Deadlydeb” , the guides in wyoming gave me years ago on my custom rifle case
    done in Swarovski chrystals. I think It would be a great match for the Custom 7mm-08 Heart rifle my husband had made for me for my 10th anniversary. Getting excited should be done any day having it dipped in Boa constrictor snake print. My two favorite things Bling and Guns.

  • Amy Justice says: July 3, 2012 at 12:04 am

    I’d love to bling my competition holster. Being one of three girls in our regional shoots can be a little colorless…

  • Tina Richardson says: July 2, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    I would add bling to my range bag, and offer it in different colors. … NOT PInk, I am so sick of every company thinking pink is the only color a woman wants. How about also adding bling to my M&P Sheild or full size M&P. NOT heavy bling… Just a hint of bling. Maybe on my eyes and ears too, but just a classy amount of bling. Too much bling just makes itt look cheap.

  • Karen W says: July 2, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    I would bling out my carry holster!

  • Kim says: July 2, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    I’d bling my ear protection and my eye protection!

  • Michelle Cerino says: July 2, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    How awesome would it look on my ear protection?!!!! No longer unattractive bumps over your ears. Instead, a fashion statement. Heck, wouldn’t even have to fix my hair.

  • Lauren Powers says: July 2, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    I would add bling to my husband’s shooting muffs that I steal every time he takes me. I have my own, but there is something about using his stuff. HA drives him crazy!

  • Tracy Hughes says: July 2, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    I would add bling to the Kydex holster I use in competition.

  • Britney Starr says: July 2, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    I would add bling to my shooting vest. 🙂

  • Emily Tupa says: July 2, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    Everything! I love my bling!

  • Amber Kline says: July 2, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    I would add bling to safety shooting sunglasses

  • Kaelyn L. says: July 2, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    My range bag! It is so blah…..;)lol. Love the jewelry so pretty and creative!
