Today I attended a really awesome workshop at the Freud Museum in London called "Memento Amour". The museum is a house once lived in by Freud and has his actual study where he analysed patients on the couch. It was amazing to see all of the treasures he collected from all over the world and surrounded himself with. The workshop was hosted by local artist Lili Spain http://lilispain.net/ and we were able to create our own necklace made of found objects and all types of chains. Here's the one I made:

It turned out a bit steampunk because of the watch parts, but I didn't plan it to be when I started. It was a very organic process. I probably won't ever wear it, but I plan on displaying it in amongst my own collection of altered art and found objects. Thanks for looking  Smiley

This is stunning, and you SHOULD wear it. I love it.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

Ooo, that sounds like such a great workshop, and your creations are wonderful!

Does your household accumulate lots of dryer lint and empty toilet paper rolls? If you'll turn them into fire-starters for me, (stuff lots of lint inside the roll, fold edges, maybe add some candle wax), I'll happily send you something nice.

I love the combination of chains and found objects that you used. Great job!
