This was made for LeapFeetFirst in the Asheville Adventure Swap.  The swap had partners who had not 'met' or didn't know one another well here on Craftster, get to know each other by exchanging a letter, and later a medium crafted item as well as a craft supply that your partner could use and some sort of local treat.  The final portion of the swap was optional, and allowed for partners to bring a final small crafted item to give their partner in person. 



The pendant base is an antique key.  It was decorated with a glass Christmas light bulb, stone beads, freshwater pearls, antiqued charms, a paper bead, bits of ribbon, and anything else I could find.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Lovely! I, too, love the found object aspect as well and the expertly balanced asymmetry!

This is lovely! And so unusual. I think it is a beautiful piece, excellent random bits paired with wonderful colour. Nicely done!

Thank you guys.  I really have to make some more of these.  They are so difficult for me, getting everything balanced visually, but once I've figured it out, there's such a sense of accomplishment.  Like I've solved a great puzzle.
