1  rock necklace advice/input. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Crazy_dude6662 on: September 07, 2010 06:12:34 PM
so, a weeks ago i was in a serious car crash, (cars back tire blew out, car spun out of control, my side hit a barrier and the car flipped, we had to be cut out) myself and the driver were fine, literally a few bruises from the seatbelt, some muscle pain and i had a small cut on my shin. when viewing the wreckage of the car (it was totaled) i took a piece of gravel that had come in through my window (which shattered) onto the dashboard.

i didn't really put any special thought into which one i took, i just went for the closest one, as a memento.
i wanted to turn this into a necklace as a reminder of how lucky i was to be unscathed/alive. However, i don't want to drill a hole in it for fear of it breaking and i only have the one piece of gravel.

my two thoughts on what to do were either
-wire wrapping (its triangular in shape)
-gluing some thing to the back which thread/metal could be slipped through.

i am kind of leaning towards wire wrapping because it would look better, though i like the image of the gravel on its own, my concerns are that, the gluing idea might make it look cheap/crappy or that wire wrapping would make it look really girly.

so if anyone has any advice on a good way to create a necklace from it, or input on which idea would work better it would be much appreciated.

it's the best picture i could get at night/with the camera i have. sorry its blurry. the 2 euro coin was for scale, but i ended up holding it to get a better picture.

2  crackle glass keyrings. (lots of pictures!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Crazy_dude6662 on: August 19, 2007 10:00:14 AM
i think this goes here.
i had a bunch of evil eye keyrings that i got in Athens and i wanted to try frying marlbes, but i had no marbles, and the charms were made of glass so i used them to make them more prettyful ^.^ only one broke. i was trying to carry them all at once so i put them in my pocket, i emptied out my pocket to find one had broken and now there are glass shards on my bed >.<

anyway, pictures! (sorry that they arnt really clear, i had to use the camera on my phone as the other camera is broken)

and i dont know why the eyes look scratched, they arn't actually.
