Bullet Jewelry? Why not!

So I ventured into my jewelry making side a few days ago. I have been OBSESSED with bullet jewelry. I enjoy shooting and it just seemed fitting. I do, however, have a girly side so bling was necessary. So after some careful research of different bullet casing jewelry, this is what I came up with...
I put a heart on it then surrounded by blue crystals and since I had already fired this casing I put a crystal in the front so it didn't look like anything was missing. I absolutely love it. I swear I won't be taking this sucker off anytime soon. However, in the first picture you can't really see the shine so this one shows that aspect off more.
It is also my before and after picture (before the crystal in the tip). I was really inspired by Bullets4Peace I loved their stuff, but as a college student I cannot afford their products. SO I put my own spin on it and love it.

My Dirty Little Secret

Ok, so confession time. I am a HUGE fabric hoarder! I tend to pick up fabrics that I think are cute, or interesting. What do I do after I pick them up? I put them to the top of my sewing room and never cut them for fear of messing them up. It is really quite problematic. SO my goal is to sew all of these up. My mom has decided to do the year without buying any ready wear. I have decide it's a pretty fantastic idea so I am now going to join her in this challenge. Lets be honest I can buy way prettier fabric than I can clothes.
It is getting a bit ridiculous, my stash, considering I have only been collecting it for all of 6 months. Shame shame.
