Hey guys! I received my package from xTroublex a few days ago but have been working non-stop and haven't had a chance to share my rad gifts! So here you go:

First I got this lovely journal

and this AWESOME necklace which has some great charms, including a beautiful clay rose

and... drum roll please... this fantastic frame!!!

I am very pleased! Thanks so much xTroublex!!!!!!! She also included some worry dolls from a local fair trade shop and some fabric scraps that I did not think to photograph.

So much fun! Smiley

Thanks everyone! And yes, I glued the rings to the backs of the charms. Gorilla glue was all I had at the time but I'll check out that epoxy stuff.

I saw a very similar necklace in a little shop for around $100. I was bummed because I really liked it but didn't have $100 to waste on a necklace. Sooo... I raided my mom's jewelry drawer and ended up with TWO!!!! I bought the chains and clasps at Michael's for around $10.

Necklace #1: "The Mr. T"

Necklace #2: "The gift I made for a friend but liked it so much I decided to keep it"

action shot:

Most of what I used were old earrings or pins. I used gorilla glue to adhere the little rings to the backs so that I could connect them to the necklace. Gorilla glue doesn't really work though. If you pull on it, it just snaps right off! I would recommend a soldering iron for a more permanent adhesive. 

I know this is a little more "tacky" for most tastes but I really love it! Hope you like it too!!!

i think it's cute! but i get what you're saying with the leprechaun-y-ness. I like it, but you wouldn't want to feel uncomfortable. I don't think you'd look like a leprechaun. Maybe you could add some red, maybe a big red flower pin?
