 I am terrible at embellishing and jewelry making. Terrible! I put on my big girl pants and tried really, really hard to make bunny1kenobi some steampunk inspired stuff for the IYP swap.
 Here is my attempt...
 I found this locket that you could fill up the inside of. I got a dragonfly charm and glued it to the front. I had a watch component piece that I glued inside and put a tiny key in it as well. The key can float around.


 Here's the inside...
 
 Thanks for looking!

 You have no idea how many other combinations I tried before I came up with this one! Embellishing is a drawn out process for me. It does not come natural! Thanks for all the support. After several failed attempts I actually came up with something I liked.

Well, I love it!  Thank you for working at it so hard!  I have had so many compliments on your jewelry, as I have worn at least one of the jewelry items every minute since i got them!
