From The Shooting Range

These little personalities are part of Rachel Pfeffer’s Bullet Buddies collection. Each Bullet Buddy is unique labored over until it obtains its own form and expression. They have all been transformed from empty bullet shells, abandoned at shooting ranges, into quite the collection of characters. They are all made by hand, and are an interesting way of recycling the bullet shells into collectable items, pendants, or key chains, and can be personalized by the artist. I suppose one could consider this a sustainable solution to all those discarded bullet shells, a step in the direction of the modifying and repurposing concepts found in the English Retreads tire handbags or Droog Rag Chair. In any case, creator Rachel Pfeffer has taken on the task of recycling and giving new life to these empty bullet shells in the creative spirit.
