Okay so I'm beginning to think that there's pretty much no way to have my pick and display it too.

I have a guitar pick that I got at a concert this summer and I'm very attatched to it. Idealy, I want to create a necklace out of it but I honestly can't see myself altering it in any way (putting a hole into it, etc). Is there any way to do this without doing that?

If I don't put it on a necklace I want to display it somehow. The problem is I want to display it in a way in which both sides of the pick are visible.

I feel so badly for this pick just sitting on the shelf collecting dust.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure how to explain this. You could do the thing were you wrap a piece of gold wire around the pick in a spiral fashion and the make a loop at the top were you could thread a chain or string through. Did that make any sense? Huh

You could also sandwich it between 2 microscope slides or similar and wire wrap or tape it, so you can still remove it, and make the necklace that way, so both sides are visible.

You could embed it in a disk of casting resin and drill/attach a loop of wire to that.  The resin would protect it against bumping and breaking and you wouldn't have to alter it in any way.  Also you could still see both sides.  Who's pick is it? A band you like?

What if you encased in resin and drilled a whole in that? Then you could wear it as a necklace or hang it from something in your room or your car's rear view mirror?

I'm curious, why is it so special? Who's pick was it?

walmart has picture frames with glass on both sides - or you could get two pieces of glass and place it in between then use copper tape around the edges and hang it so that it spins and then you sould see both sides.

Put it in an altered book!!!!  Search Craftster for "altered books" and I'm sure you'll decide it's the perfect place for your pick.

Or a small shrine! If the frame is deep enough you could hang it from the top inside so it spins. It could even be small enough to wear. See Amaryllis Rose's posts for inspiration. ( I have a Ramones pick I cherish but it's just in my jewelry box! This is giving me ideas too!) Here's a new one she posted: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72610.0;topicseen

Amazing idea I would have never thought of. Thank you!

I'll definitely look into this, thank you!

It's actually Taylor Hanson's pick. Hanson has been my favorite band since pretty much forever, haha.
