Shaw's Necklace

When I found out that my co worker Shashawna "Shaw" was moving back to San Diego, I just knew I was going to make a special little trinket for her. She has been a big fan of things I have made as well as my re-purposing friend Tina, so it only seemed right that I'd make her something special. So I dug through my little bag of goodies and found a few items for which I new I could work some "magic".

The "charm" hanging off the necklace is actually from a necklace I no longer wore so I decided to re-purposed it in this necklace. The other beads are all treasure found from thrift stores or from other necklaces for which I have dissected to use for various other projects. The chain is from my favorite store "Craft Warehouse" although I love to call it
"Craft World"!

I hope Shaw will enjoy this little piece of work and think of her Medford peeps whenever she wears it. Good luck in San Diego Shaw. We will miss you!

Here is a little friend I created from a vintage button and some left over beads. Isn't she pretty? Cute as a button I'd say!
