Bullet Splat debuted it’s line of ballistic jewelry at NRA 2018, displaying a variety of uses for spent bullets recreated in precious metals. Mostly silver but with some gold as well, the jewelry ensures that after a day at the range, nothing goes to waste.

Writer’s update: Bullet Splat takes the spent bullets, makes a mold of them, and then recreates them in solid silver. The bullets are NOT encased inside the metal.

Becky Arrants, owner at Bullet Splat says she created the line of jewelry after seeing what happens to a bullet after it hits a steel target. “It looks like a flower” she explained. “It started with just a little bit of jewelry for myself on the side and became a business I love to own.” The company has also been featured multiple times in the magazine “Cowboys and Indians”.

Bullet Splat makes a variety of ballistic jewelry for men and women.

Becky’s husband is a cowboy action shooter and provides some of the ammunition she uses in her designs. The smallest round they’ve used is .22lr but they have a tendency to disintegrate when the bullet hits the target. The largest caliber she’s done is a 45-70. Becky assures me they can accommodate whatever sized round you bring.

Bullet Splat makes earrings, necklaces, money clips and more with MSRPs varying based on the item purchased. The newest addition is a set with a pearl in the center of each item with the necklace and earrings coming in at $225.

    Hello! And thanks for the great article, pictures, and interest in Bullet Splat Jewelry®️. Just need to make a correction to some info in the article. My jewelry is NOT encased! I take the lead splat, made a mold, and recreate in solid silver. NO LEAD! And the 22s tend to disintigrate when they hit the target, it has nothing to do with recreating them in silver. Thanks so much, and had a great time at the NRA. Becky

      @Rachel Y Rachel, thanks so very much! That is my biggest challenge as most folks assume it is plated or painted or encased. Thank you for making the corrections!
