Handmade earrings, Turquoise rhinestones, 9mm luger shell, brass


I started this design with a recycled brass shell from a 9mm luger bullet. My husband does target shooting and brought back some brass shell casings to see if I could use them. They are a perfect accent for rhinestones set in brass. I set some 1960's vintage Swarovski turquoise opal rhinestones in brass settings and dangled them from brass wire with wire wrapped Swarovski crystals. Gorgeous turquoise color rhinestone chain adds a nice swing and sparkle. A gorgeous, faceted angelite gemstone rondelle tops everything off. Everything is securely wire wrapped with brass wire. They are hanging from brass ear wires that I handforged, polished and tumbled. They measure 3 1/2" (8.9 cm) from the top of the ear wires to the bottom of the last rhinestone.

These are made to order. The ones you receive will be very similar, but not exactly the same as the one pictured.

I'll always combine shipping if you buy multiple items together. I accept paypal, money orders and cashiers checks. All items come gift wrapped for you to open yourself or give to someone else. The shipping/handling price includes delivery confirmation (except for international since that service isn't available). There is no charge for shipping within the United States and there is a nominal shipping charge to other countries. When I ship I use first class mail. Domestically I always use shipment tracking. If it is available internationally I will also use it.

If you are sensitive to brass let me know in the comments to seller and I will swap the ear wires for gold filled, sterling, niobium or surgical steel - whichever works best for you. The brass shell has been polished with a display wax so it won't tarnish too quickly - but brass will tarnish over time. I'll include a polishing cloth with your jewelry.

At cserpentDesigns you'll find high quality, unique artisan jewelry and more, created and designed by ME!

Shipping: Free shipping for all domestic purchases. Unfortunately recent USPS changes to rates means I have to charge a nominal amount for shipping of international orders. I'll issue a refund in paypal or can send you an updated invoice if your estimated shipping is way over actual costs.

International - I'll be using international first class mail for all orders in order to save costs. Third party insurance is used for items that cost $25 or more. No delivery confirmation is available unless you would like to upgrade your shipping to global priority (which costs quite a bit more). If you would like tracking for your package be sure to let me know and I will quote you a shipping price using global priority mail.

Domestic - I use USPS first class mail or priority mail with delivery confirmation. For items over $25 I always add insurance.

Express shipping: If you want it fast just let me know and I'll adjust the shipping charges before you purchase or will send you an adjusted invoice if you decide after you purchase. I charge USPS rates for items so if you need an express shipping quote let me know.


Refunds and Exchanges - If the item you receive is not what you expected please contact me about it. I want my customers to be happy with their purchases. If we mutually agree that the item should be returned then you'll need to return it in the original packaging and in the original condition when you received it. I insure items over $25 so if your item is broken in transit contact me immediately so I can arrange for the items return and for compensation from the shipping company.

Additional Policies and FAQs

More on Gold Filled versus Gold Plated:

I use gold filled beads/wire rather than gold plated because gold filled is created by a process of using heat and pressure to bond a layer of real gold over some base metal (usually copper). Gold plating is an electro-chemical process which places a thin molecule of gold (or something gold colored) over a base metal and then a second chemical is often used for finishing to add a brightness to the bead. I found early on that gold plating can wear off in weeks if it is really poorly done and heavily used. Since that initial disappointment I've used gold filled beads (when available) and have never seen a sign of wear on any of the pieces I've worn over the years. I even polished some gold-filled beads in some jewelry my Aunt made me 20 years ago and they are now just as gold and shiny as when she first bought them.



Thank you so much. I love the earrings you created with the frit beads.-deronda


This spider is absolutely stunning in person. The workmanship & quality are wonderful. Quick shipping and excellent packaging. I won't even need to wrap the box for Christmas!
On a scale of 1-10 this gets a 20 ;)


Susan's shop is wonderful - her jewelry is more beautiful in person - I was already in love now I don't know what to wear first each piece is more beautiful than the last one in my hand - thank you so very much -- I love every piece!!!!


Thank you so much - the bracelets are so beautiful and fit perfectly - I love each piece so much -- Susan thank you -I am so sorry I was away when the jewelry arrived but opening the packages & writing to you are two of the first things I did when I arrived home! Thank you - a thousand times thank you
