They are Naval Explosive Ordnandez Disposal officers, or bomb techs, who started the company to turn something that could do harm, a bullet, into a symbol of hope and healing.
B2B will introduce clothing into their line. It already sells hats and T- shirts in addition to the bullet jewelry. By hiring a female employee, they also hope to branch out to the women’s market.
Bullets2Bandages was started by two former bomb techs who turned demilitarized arsenals into “bullet jewelry.”
