Meet Etsy Artists: awelldressedbullet

I've seen so many unique things on Etsy that it always amazes me when I find another. I stumbled upon this bullet pen totally by accident and - as someone who is writing a novel about a medevac crew in the Vietnam War - fell in love with it right away...

Ontario residents Kathy and Rick have been operating A Well Dressed Bullet since 1983, creating everything from pens to belt buckles out of spent shells. "We have been happily married for 30 years," they gush. "In 2001, we got a little tired of retirement," Kathy explains. "Rick always enjoyed making his Bullet Pens and we thought the Internet would be a great way to sell them." They quickly implemented a website and began selling their creative pens. "We started out with only 6 or 8 styles of bullet pens and look what we have now!" A perfect team, Rick is the creative genius and Kathy is the administrative guru. "We both share the housework and grab meals when we can. We truly enjoy our business and producing such unique items. We are always thankful for our customers and enjoy the wonderful emails they send us." Although their website has always been their main source of income, they realized Etsy was a perfect fit for their endeavors. "I was amazed at the beautiful handcrafted items being sold," Kathy says. "We are happy to be part of the Etsy family!" Please check out their shop:

I love this. I made a pendant out of the shell that was shot at my father's funeral.
