Recycling used shotgun cartridges into wall art and accessories

About After Shot Handmade

We specialise in recycling shotgun cartridges into beautiful wall art ready for your homes. These lovely pieces include some of our personal designs. You can personalise your item by choosing from the various colour and design options for a combination that suits your style. Not only that but we also have many different accessories that would make a great addition to your outfit or perfect gifts. Plus, each item will differ slightly to the next, resulting in no item being the same. Why not talk to us about full customisation?

We are a small business just starting out. Living in the country we are surrounded by beautiful views, rolling hills and plenty of trees. The home of shooting. Knowing several people involved in the shooting world it is familiar to us. We enjoy clay shooting, it's so much fun!

One day I was asked to make a custom design using cartridge tops. After completing this order I had so many ideas of how to utilise these, otherwise dis-guarded, used cartridges. On top of creating many designs (and having plenty more ideas!), we are also able to recycle!

Each cartridge top is removed by hand before being hand polished to get the best out of it. Now, these items are used, so they are not all perfect. But we do our best to bring them up as nicely as possible, ready for a second life as a beautiful piece of art, or maybe something else!
