    A few years ago a friend of mine discovered a ring that was very unique, only to discover it was "trench art"... a term I never heard fo till then

    Made from a bullet casing....

     

    Here is a little blurb from Collectors Weekly about it...

     

    Strictly speaking, trench art is a phrase that describes folk art created by soldiers who were stuck in the trenches during World War I. But trench art as a more broadly defined genre includes all sorts of art objects made during numerous military conflicts going back to the early 1800s, including items produced by prisoners of war.
