Badass Babe was founded by a young woman from a small Midwestern farm town. She began making jewelry because she enjoyed going out and practicing shooting and then gathering the brass. She wanted to make fun, beautiful, and practical jewelry for herself and her friends. Badass Babe was founded with the belief that we are all multi-dimensional individuals. We’re caring, we’re nurturing, we’re rowdy, we’re badass. We’re all a little bit of everything all the time, and Badass Babe wants to help us show off every aspect of who we are. Each piece of high-power ammunition jewelry is hand-crafted with as many made-in-the-USA parts as possible and is made from brass gathered from hunters and shooters. Not only that, but Badass Babe donates 5% of sales to the Northwest Montana Veterans Stand in Kalispell, Montana, showing that Badass Babe is all Montana, all the time!

Dixie Schallenberger is the artistic genius behind High Country Designs. High Country Designs is located in the Ruby Valley, near the beautiful mountains of Southwestern Montana. The breath-taking valley offers Dixie plenty of inspiration for her jewelry as well as plenty of wildflowers. Dixie Schallenberger started High Country Designs as nothing more than a hobby. However, in 1978, her hobby transformed into a beautiful business. Now Dixie hand-slices, and hand-presses all of her beautiful antler jewelry so you can have your own piece of Montana wherever you are!
