What are Sonoran Shells?
Sonoran Shells are spent bullet shell casings that are collected from the Sonoran Desert and recycled into stylish artisan jewelry. The shells are thoroughly cleaned and given a new purpose and life by becoming beautiful handcrafted jewelry.
The Arizona desert is a gathering place for target practice. While many gun owners are responsible and do clean up their shells, others leave their casings to pollute the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Sonoran Shells are the lucky casings that have been rescued and repurposed.
