A while ago, I came across a really neat necklace on one of the craft sites I visit (I think it was craftgawker.com), I fell in love with it and saved the picture on my phone with the intent of someday making my own. A few months later, this Craftster challenge came up presenting the perfect opportunity for me to find the time to make the necklace! The necklace fit this challenge perfectly because it is a literal "Rock, Paper, Scissors" necklace .
The paper is from an old book, so it already had the aged coloring, plus the paper was WAY thicker than any paper used in current books! I put a thin layer of some paper sealant on it to strengthen and seal it. I found the pebble in my backyard and was going to drill a hole in it, but none of the local hardware stores carry diamond tip bits. The scissors were the hardest part of the project - none of the craft stores in the surrounding area carried scissors charms. Just when I was about to hang my head in despair, I found a jewelry cart in the mall that had exactly what I was looking for! I know my pictures aren't the greatest quality, but hopefully they work okay.
Preparing to put it all together:

I hope you all like it, I definitely enjoyed making it and am pleased with the final outcome!
