I have my own casings. Can you produce your SureShot™ designs using my casings?Absolutely! Whether you just shot your first round as a new gun owner, or you landed your first deer or if you have military related (21 gun salute) rifle casings, we are happy to use your casings in our SureShot™ designs. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Note that each of our designs are made with certain casing sizes and use coordinating bezel sizes in diameters that only fit those casings. For this reason, your choice of design will be highly dependent on your casing(s). If you are not sure what size your casing is by the headstamp, please include a picture of your casings when emailing us with the headstamp showing. Also give us the diameter size of the top of the casing. We will contact you to discuss your options and provide you with instructions for mailing your casings to us. Note that we cannot accept casings that have bullets in them, new ammo, or casings that have live primers. Please allow us 1-2 weeks production time prior to shipping to create your design although we will do our best to ship within 1 week of ordering. All custom pieces are final sale.

I love one of your necklaces, but I want it to be on a shorter/longer chain. How much will this cost?SureShot™ pieces were designed using chain lengths that are complementary, balanced and in proportion to the rest of the design. As jewelry artisans, we feel the designs are the perfect length as offered. If you want a shorter chain, you can purchase the necklace as it is and have the chain customized or shorten it yourself using DIY methods. If you need a longer chain, please email us about purchasing a separate chain and the cost associated with it at email@example.com.
Do you do Engraving?No, we are not engravers. Engraving requires special equipment that is readily available at a local jeweler in your local area. If you want to know if a product can be engraved, please email us. Several of our accessories can be engraved. Most jewelry cannot as there is no place for engraving to be done.
We are having a country/western themed wedding. Do you do wedding party work?Absolutely! Our creator and designer of the SureShot collection was in the wedding business for nearly 20 years. She used to work personally with brides to plan the perfect wedding theme, from the flowers to the church to the reception. Click on the Wedding Party link on our home page to learn more or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I tell what sizes your jewelry pieces are?A picture can be deceiving as to the size of the piece you’re ordering. And size matters. For this reason, you will always find multiple shots of a SureShot™ design in each listing including a photo taken with a coin to better the size and proportion of the design. We also indicate the size of the piece or length of the chain or how long the drop of an assemblage to be within the listing descriptions. We state measurements in American inches and/or millimeters. If in doubt, email us for more details about the piece you’re interested in.
Bracelet SizesMost women feel comfortable wearing a bracelet that is 7 to 7-1/2 inches in size, which is the standard length. The bracelet will hang between your hand and wrist bone, which is the most attractive position. Most of our bracelets are “standard” length. If the length is smaller or larger than standard length, the description will state this.
Wrist SizingMeasure your wrist with a flexible, soft tape measure (or a piece of string) just above the wrist bone (above the wrist bone is the area between your hand and the wrist bone). This is your actual wrist size, not your bracelet size. Add 1/3” to 1” to your actual wrist size, giving you your approximate bracelet size. The more you add to your wrist size the more your bracelet will hang lower to your hand.
Standard Bracelet Sizes
Re-Sizing of our BraceletsIf your wrist is larger, depending on the design and size requested, we may be able to make the bracelet larger by adding a key/link, larger clasp or extra rings to the end or ends.
If your wrist is smaller, generally we will be able to remove a key/link or remove a link or two of the bracelet’s core depending on the size requested and the design of the bracelet.
BRACELETS: If you want a bracelet resized, please contact us prior to making your purchase to discuss your needs. Costs are dependent upon the individual bracelet, the materials, and work involved.
METAL CUFFS: Our cuffs are not cut and formed in our studio, rather they are purchased, so we are not able to create the base cuff in a custom size. Our cuffs a standard size and will fit most 7-8” wrist sizes. Note that metal cuffs are meant to sit behind the wrist bone and not spin loosely. They are meant to be stationery but not tight. If your wrist is larger or smaller than this 7-8” range, and depending on your personal preferences regarding fit, our cuffs may not be a good fit. Note that if you have a smaller wrist, please email us after purchase and let us know as we can pinch the base cuff before construction to make its circumference smaller for a better fit. Due to cold construction methods, our cuffs are NOT adjustable after completed. We cannot guarantee the connections if you attempt to resize a metal cuff post purchase and is not covered under our return/exchange policy. LEATHER CUFFS: Our leather cuffs are made with two snaps, one at 7” and the other at 8” and seem to be perfect for most.
Necklaces SizesNecklace lengths are measured from the hollow at the base of your throat. Choker 12-16 inch: This length falls perfectly around the base of the neck. This is a classic and versatile way to show off your signature pendants.
Princess 18-20 inch: Perfect length for pendants and to make an eye-catching look. This is the most common and classic length for most women. This length is great for both casual and business attire. If you’re not certain which length is right, this is an excellent choice.
Matinee 20-24 inch: A 20” is the next most popular length for both casual or business attire. This length is perfect to wear over your clothes or with a plunging eck line.
Opera Length 26-35 inch: This is a long necklace offering many options. It can be worn as a single strand or even doubled up as a choker length.
Men’s Necklace LengthsMost men today wear their necklaces at longer lengths or at their individual preferences. This length usually falls at around 22-24”. Please contact us if you need to adjust the sizing of one of our men’s or unisex necklace styles to fit your preference.
Are the bullets and shotgun casings safe to wear?All SureShot™ jewelry and accessories are made using once fired or “spent” casings. This means that they are “dead” and can no longer be shot through a pistol, revolver, rifle or shotgun. If you notice the centers of all of the bullets or shotgun casings have dimpled primers in the center. This indicates that they have in fact been fired through a firearm and thus dead and safe.
Do you clean the casings before using them in jewelry applications?We put all casings through a thorough cleaning and polishing process prior to using them in any jewelry application. The cleaning process removes any debris and any gun powder residue. The tumbling process utilizes special mediums mixed with a microcrystalline wax compound that gives the casings their luster and aids them in retaining their shine as well as to deter fingerprints and tarnishing.
Do you have a list of all of the calibers and gauges you carry in the SureShot™ collection?We pride ourselves on having the largest selection of bullet, rifle and shotgun casings you will find in the country. We carry all of the most popular casings and calibers, but if there is a special caliber that you are looking for, please email us as we do keep small inventories of special casings in reserve for those unique requests. We also have reputable resources where we can source just about any casing you may be looking for – from hard to find 32-20s to wild game ammo like 505 Gibbs. Simply email us with your request. To find all jewelry and accessories that use a particular casing or caliber, simply enter that number in the search box on the site and it will return all pieces from the collection that utilize it. Some of our earring styles, rings, money clips and cuff links offer several optional bullet casing calibers for a particular design. The listing descriptions will indicate these options, so if you like a product, but want it in a different caliber or gauge, the listing descriptions will give you any options (if any). Feel free to email us if you are not finding what you are looking for.
Bullets and shotgun casings are made of brass and brass WILL tarnish over time. For this reason, all of our listings have a checkbox for your convenience to purchase a polishing cloth. This cloth is only to be used on the top or face of the bullet or shotgun casing(s) as needed. In the case of a piece that uses entire bullet casings, you can use the cloth to clean the shank of the casing as well. In the case of a cuff or design that uses other components, bezels, filigrees, chain or other metal indings, this cloth is NOT to be used excessively on these parts due to our components being finished with an oxidized or vintage patina. Excessive use of a polishing cloth on these parts will only take the oxidation away and shine the metal, thus eliminating the vintage look it currently has. Note that we’ve already applied a special coat of micro-crystalline wax to the top(s) of your bullet or shotgun casings. In the case of entire bullets, we’ve tumbled them in a special wax compound prior to application in the jewelry. These processes will deter both fingerprints deter tarnishing. Regardless, over time, you will eventually have to clean the casings to return them to their shiny luster. Our polishing cloths are always available for purchase on the website. To clean your casings, take the cloth and gently wipe in a circular motion over the tops of each casing. In the case of entire bullets, gently wrap the cloth around the shank and while holding the top lip of the bullet, gently turn the bullet back and forth to clean the bullet(s). Note that this cloth will get dirty after repeated use, but you can keep it in its bag and reuse it until it turns completely black on both sides.
Caring for Leather ComponentsExcessive heat and moisture can damage leather cording and cuffs. SureShot™ only uses high quality genuine leather or suede cording for its necklaces and heavy 8-9 oz. strap leather for its cuff bracelets. We suggest avoiding wearing any leather jewelry in the shower, hot tub, sauna or swimming pool as these can easily damage your leather. Over time, leather will darken from normal wear, water exposure, skin oils and lotions. Our genuine leather will become soft and supple over time, yet retain its rich leather aroma. All of our leather components are made in the USA.
More About our ComponentsSureShot™ jewelry and accessories possess a unique, oxidized finish to give most of our designs a rustic charm. These elements include our filigrees, bezels, embellishments, chains and findings. Extended periods of non-use and exposure to elements may speed the tarnishing process. Elements that may cause your jewelry to become dirty through wear are things like sweat, perfume, lotions, soaps, among lots of other daily items. They can and will deposit chemicals on your skin which can affect your jewelry and in turn your skin. As a result, the reaction of the dirty jewelry may cause a residue that may end up on your skin. The trick to keeping most metals from tarnishing or turning your skin a weird color is to keep your jewelry clean and dry. Keeping it dry, not wearing it if you perspire easily, and keeping it in air tight containers or baggies when not in use will all contribute to its longevity. Also keep in mind, that the same things like sweat, perfumes, lotions, soaps and simply your own unique skin oils can affect the jewelry and in turn may cause a reaction of the jewelry. Note that this has nothing to do with the quality of our components, but a reaction that can occur from ANY jewelry you wear.
If you find you have to clean your jewelry with a soft cloth, keep in mind that you may remove some of the oxidation and it may begin to look shiny and the cloth may turn black. Once the oxidation has been removed, it cannot be replaced, so take care in being harsh with any cleaning cloths. You may effectively clean the chain in very mild, soapy water, but take care NOT to let any of the other components to come into contact with any water. We also do not recommend the use of any jewelry dipping solutions as they may be abrasive to the finishes or the delicate findings. Please contact us for more information. We are not responsible for any damage due to cleaning with water or other liquids. We recommend avoiding water or any liquids completely. As with any costume jewelry, it is best to avoid wearing your jewelry in the shower, while sleeping or exercising, and remove any rings before washing your hands.
What is the content of your earring components?We use stainless steel French wires and stainless posts. Our brass wires are essentially brass over steel. Always read the listing descriptions for this information or feel free to email us if you have a concern about a particular product. A special note: All of our earrings are finished both front and back and we will always include a photo in the listing of the backs of our designs. They clearly show that our earrings are properly set in bezels or mountings. These bezels and mountings are both lead and nickel free to protect your skin should you have sensitivities. How unsightly would it be to turn over your jewelry and find a raw cut bullet or the hollowed inside of a shotgun casing showing! As true jewelry artisans, we produce jewelry that is presented finished both front and back. This translates to quality jewelry and what makes SureShot™ stand out above the rest.
Does SureShot jewelry contain lead or nickel?All components and findings used in our jewelry are both lead and nickel free All components and findings are sourced and handcrafted in the USA unless otherwise stated in the product's description area. Note that bullets are made of brass, and silver colored bullets are actually brass bullets with a nickel plating over them. As with all SureShot™ Jewelry, we properly mount or bezel set our casings so the raw bullet will never be in contact with your skin or clothes. This is important to note for those with allergies. Many makers of bullet jewelry simply leave the raw backs of bullet and shotgun casings, but here at SureShot™ we take special care in properly finishing our work both front and back to ensure comfort, safety and quality overall with all of our jewelry.
