High Plains Drifter Necklace

I used Remington 45 Automatic shell casings, 16 gauge brass wire, and cowhide leather wallet-lace to make this necklace.

raw materials

It is inspired by my love for way West Texas and most things Italian – Gucci, gnocchi, Moto Guzzi – to name three biggies.

I was wanting something new and beautiful for myself. I wasn’t worrying about my bottom dollar / how fast can i make this? – for once.

“High Plains Drifter” is my favorite Clint Eastwood spaghetti western movie. I name some of the pieces I make after my favorite spaghetti western films. (A spaghetti western film is one that is based on American old west gunslingers, but generally shot by Italian filmmakers.)
