Meet the Makers


Hi there, I'm Bridget! I began creating Bullet Bloom with my folks in November 2015. I was home for Thanksgiving and my pops, who is a military veteran and avid firearms enthusiast, showed me how certain types of ammunition expand. My mom and I then spent the weekend freaking out about how cool it was and all the amazing ideas we had.

I went back to where I was living at the time, quit my corporate job, and became a metalsmith. It didn’t exactly happen so seamlessly in that order, but close enough. Somewhere along that timeline, my super rad grandfather, Britt “Baco” Brown (also a military veteran), passed. One of our last conversations propelled me to go hard in the paint on pursuing this incredible adventure. He told me: “Life is too short to be miserable. Quit your soul sucking job and throat punch the sh*t outta your dreams”… or something like that.

To me these bullets represent a “dodged bullet” since they haven’t technically hit anything and Lord knows every single person can say they’ve dodged a proverbial bullet. Probably a few bullets. Or maybe even a real bullet. Or knows someone that might not have been so lucky in which case they can wear a “dodged bullet” in their honor.

Appreciate you taking the time to read this and thank you for your support in my endeavor to create beautiful, meaningful statement pieces out of powerful expanded bullets and to be a reminder of our strength and sovereignty.

Much love,
