Dummy Bullet has worked with jewelry designers, costume designers, has supplied inert bullets to be used in movies and worked with set designers, and stage crews. Often I will get requests to make ‘bullets’ up to look a certain way. If you need something, to look like….or have these holes drilled….or a different bullet design…or…..just let me know.

Inert ‘bullets’ can be used in many different ways, and can be included in a variety of different artistic mediums. Jewelry, textiles, and sculpture are just a few areas where INERT, but realistic, cartridges can be incorporated into a design with unique results!

9mm ‘bullet beads’

These ‘beads’ are actual 9mm pistol cartridges that have been rendered completely inert and are ready to be used in your project. A hole runs from top to bottom and the cartridge can be strung like a bead. Best yet, the bead is extremely light weight. All of the lead core of the bullet has been removed so you are left with a cartridge that is almost exactly half the weight of a regular inert ‘bullet’. In fact the finished ‘bullet bead’ weighs less than a quarter!

These are made one at a time with great care and they will come to you highly polished and ready to use in your jewelry. Remember that everything I sell is completely INERT.

.25 Auto ‘bullet beads’

These Bullet “BEADS” are made using the .25 Auto cartridge. The 25 auto is the smallest of all of the center fire pistol cartridges. Their diminutive size means that they can be integrated into smaller pieces such as earrings or charms. Each cartridge is made without the lead normally found in the cartridge so they are SUPER light!

These are made one at a time with great care and they will come to you highly polished and ready to use in your jewelry. Remember that everything I sell is completely INERT.

5.7x28 FN “ Bullet Beads”

These are very cool. The 5.7x28 FN is a very small cartridge but has the same profile of a larger rifle round. Large cartridges are not well suited to be used in jewelry, but these are great! Only 1.5 inches long and very light, these can be adapted to many jewelry projects. They are drilled from top to bottom so they can be strung like a bead. All of the lead has been removed so they are very light and easy to string. These are quite a bit harder and more time consuming to make than the other ‘beads’ I sell so they are a little more expensive. They come with a nice shinny finish.
