Hi everyone!

This necklace was inspired by asmileforsin's post:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=85907.0

I poked a hole in the top of the matchbox and made a loop for the chain with an eye hook (I think that's what it's called. I'm not sure.)





The words are: Collection, One of a Kind, grace and creativity, paris, Latte, and the letters NY.  I cut them out from an issue of Vogue.

I'm thinking about adding images/drawings to the sides of the matchbox, but I haven't decided yet.

Living is more like tearing through a museum.  Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering-because you can't take it all in at once.  - Audrey Hepburn

That's pretty neat. You could probably make a sort of locket out of both parts of the box, I'd bet.

DUH! I was expecting a little car! You know a matchbox car! What a dork I am!  Embarrassed

This is much more creative and probably more user friendly too!

But a matchbox car WOULD make a very awesome necklace, but probably not as awesome as this one Smiley I really like it
