Not for the first time, I made a necklace out of found wood.
While on our trip I found this bit of driftwood on the beach I knew it was destined to be a necklace so I put it in my backpack.
I added a band of gold leaf and then the chain. For the chain, I just chopped a short, gold necklace in half with scissors and poked holes in the ends of the driftwood with an awl. A drop of super glue and a pin to shove the chain into the glue and I was done. Not very elegant but it worked and has held up through several wearings.
I barely ever wear jewelry but enjoy this piece. A little bit of summer vacation to take into Fall.
This is the third (or so) in my series of natural souveniers. I've got at least one more coming up--I'm having fun!
