Inspired...

Inspired by the book "Semiprecious Salvage", here are two necklaces I created as a take on the Open Doors Toggle Necklace. I love this book because it teaches it is okay to not have all your metals match. That something found and distressed is so beautiful! I also created a pocket watch necklace with the same vintage feel.The pocket watch necklace is listed in my shop, but I am going to give away one of the Open Doors Toggle Necklaces! All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me which of the two you like best. I will draw a winner on Friday, April 10th and that person will get the necklace they chose. I will then list the other one in my shop. Good luck!

Here are some more detailed pics of the two:

Let's call this one Tell the Story.... it features a copper piece I etched myself and a chunk of quartz.
This one is In My Past Life.... it features a piece I stamped myself with metal letters and a very old watch face.

Hmmm, I think it's kind of cool to have a watch on a necklace. I have to say, though, that my fav is Tell the Story. I think what I like about it is the variance of the colors. I really like the blue quartz.

Both of these are sooo nice!! This is very hard..but..i like "In My Past Life". I like everything about it, the name, the watch, all the metals, and the purple button is key!!

Lorelei - here is a link to where I bought the lockplates. This line has some cool keys too that I got! They are actually considered part of a scrapbook collection. http://www.nonadesigns.com/thadorn.htm

I had a hard time deciding between the two, but finally chose "Tell the Story". I really like the copper pendant and toggle. Very cool stuff! Thanks for the giveaway!

I like both too, but I think Tell the story is also my favorite!
