Nicho Necklace



My very good friend Zuzu is the guest designer on Mixed Media Monday monthly this month. Her chosen theme is Shrines. This started out as a little nicho type shrine thing, all empty and naked. I decided to make a necklace out of it so I Utted it up, drilled into the side to add an old pocket watch winder and then added cogs and wheels and springs to it. I have given a before and after photo.

You are so clever with your drilling and soldering, and glueing, and painting etc - you create such magical marvels that bare no resemblance to the basic materials you start off with.

Pure Magic.
