So, I made this:



It's a This Little Piggy Went to Market art shrine necklace. Obviously. I mean, what else could it be?



This is, also obviously, a mixed media piece using reclaimed and recycled materials. Well, the little plastic pig I cut apart was new. But still!



The silver clasp is new but the pearls were salvaged from an old necklace.



The houses are from an extra copy of Monopoly.



Oink!

Originally this was going to be a completely different pig-themed necklace. But it just wasn't working so I took it (and its components - not easy, thanks to two-part epoxy) and took another stab at it.



Pearls before swine, y'all.



*laugh*

This necklace cracks me up in so many ways.

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

Way to go! This rocks!

I love the contrast between the pop-art feel of the tin shrine and the pearls

Indeed! I love this piece - the use of the pearls makes such an awesome contrast to your shrine! Nice! How does it feel to wear?

Thanks to you all! I had a lot of fun making this necklace and it is still cracking me up.

Pogo, it's actually really comfy - just like wearing any other tri-stranded pearl necklace. The tin is not very heavy and there is enough ease that the houses don't really come into contact with your throat at all.

It DOES garner attention. *grin* Even the people who don't comment, tend to stare and smile. Which is AWESOME.
