Long time lurker, first time poster.  My son brought me eight hand grenade pins from his time at Air Force Basic Training.  I would like to do something jewelry-ish with them, but all ideas are appreciated.  They aren't quite what I was thinking they were going be, and they are a little heavy for earrings.  I was thinking of attaching two jump rings to each one and attaching chain, making a necklace.  They are a greenish/bronze color, and are made like keychains. 



(Please note my coin ring.  I'm so proud!)

yeah, that necklace idea might be nice. thats a tough one. you could link something else between them perhaps, or link them together without anything inbetween, so they go opposite directions and then link a chain at the ends of them. i dont know if im explaining this very well...

I would link them together to make a short (not quite choker) necklace. Keep the connecting rings to odd numbers, though, to keep the pin rings flat. If you wear gold, maybe bright gold large-ish (half the size or less) connecting rings, with the pins themselves all pointing down.

That's the first thing that occurs to me anyway.

They would also look cool singularly from a long chain or cord.

I don't know about jewelry, but you could certainly freak out your boss. Act disgruntled all day and then wave the pin hysterically. Fun fun!
