Sharp Shooter

Sure to disarm onlookers with their dangerous charm, artist Shannon Astali DeJong DeJong's recycled brass bullet casing cufflinks are unapologetically provocative yet straight-shooting statement pieces made for everyday wear. DeJong scours shooting ranges and salvages discarded shells to create each one-of-a-kind pair.

None of the bullets were used for harm—DeJong's goal is to celebrate recycling, not violence. Handmade in New Jersey.

Due to heightened concern about gun violence, UncommonGoods will be discontinuing this product. Until current inventory is sold out, UncommonGoods will donate 20% of the proceeds from this product to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

Astali jewelry is hand-crafted and designed by NYC-based artist, Shannon Astali DeJong. Since her childhood in rural Iowa, Shannon has been collecting discarded objects and crafting them into something new. She would often rescue materials from unexpected places and use them to fashion ornate gifts. She eventually began to customize jewelry and would find ways to turn just about anything into an adornment.

In 1997, Shannon threw everything she owned into her car and moved to Los Angeles with dreams of playing her violin in a rock band. Within a week of arriving, she was already playing with a local rock band and performed her first gig.

During the day, Shannon spent time cultivating her passion for jewelry design, and worked behind the scenes for many successful Los Angeles jewelry designers. She worked her way from production, to sample-making, to design, and then onto managing both design and production teams. She always kept a home studio to refine her skills and design concepts. Her double life as a designer-by-day and rocker-by-night culminated in the birth of a line attributed to an alter-ego she named Jack Astali. As the line evolved, its subversive, rebellious nature emerged. Hallmarks of Astali designs include rugged and unexpected materials.

Astali became a full-time endeavor when Shannon moved to New York in the Fall of 2008. When she isn't making jewelry or rock and roll, Shannon spends a great deal of time doting on her brood of chinchillas, trying to understand why they do what they do.

All Astali jewelry is hand-crafted with pride in the United States.

      Husband loves how unique it is. he loves stylish clothes and loves shoting and guns. This was the perfect match between both.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was amazingly fast. I ordered on Friday afternoon (weekend before Christmas) and received it on Saturday morning. Originally i was thinking that i would print a picture of what i purchased and wrap that for Christmas, but to have the actual item was great.

              I bought this for the "guy who has everything" as something unique and different. They look really cool and interesting. A little more than I wanted to spend but it will be worth it just to see the look on my husband's face.

                  Ordered these for my husband for Christmas. Thought for sure I had a really unique gift that would be a surprise. Unfortunately, my husband (a hunter and shooter) was less than impressed :( He was more interested in a different pair of cuff links for the same price.

                    The perfect gift to a son-in-law entering his second semester of law school,studying criminal law. He was very impressed with the uniqueness of the gift and the quality of the materials. He also appreciates everything "repurposed". It was a great hit!!

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    My order was delivered extremely promptly in the midst of the holiday season. The packaging of the gift in a recycled jersey knit bag added to the spirit of the "uncommon".

                    I will be using your website and products in the future.
