- Practically all bullets on the planet are made of lead, therefore jewelry made from bullet parts could easily be dangerous to everyone, especially if the jewelry makers are melting or heating the bullet parts.  Once incorporated into jewelry, lead is particularly hazardous to people who mouth or suck on the jewelry and leaded jewelry has been fatal when ingested.  Tragically, leaded jewelry has not been banned in any country, although in the United States if the jewelry is intended for children, it cannot contain more than 90 parts per million (ppm) lead. - Elizabeth O'Brien.
