Oh my gosh! I think I'm hooked!

I saw this idea on a web site. I LOVE it! I bought this brass, pocket watch back, in Mount Dora. I knew I wanted to try this stamping. My plan is to make a charm necklace with old, odd pieces of jewelry that I've collected over the years. I think the stamping turned out well.

This piece was missing something. Before I attach it to the necklace, I needed to make something to put into the cone part. See the picture below for what I came up with.

People that come to my house always comment on the number of bird nest's I have collected. I love them. A home of 'organized chaos'. I thought the tiny bird nest would look cute. I really like the way it turned out.

I doubt I will make too many of these but I like the idea of being able to personalize jewelry. I also like finding a home for all my weird pendants I collected over the years. We will see if I ever wear it!
