Introduction: Avant Garde Dolly Assemblage Necklace

Just like Dr. Frankenstein, I created this one of a kind necklace with bits and pieces of forgotten memories from the past.

I've used the guts from a long ago broken, vintage pocket watch, a skeleton key that once unlocked someone's secrets, and a porcelain dolly's arm. (she lost it in an zombie attack), poor dear....

This repurposed wonder is sure to turn heads!

    Sweeeeeeeeeet! Not your average cutsie-poo necklace. I might use it with students as an inspirational start off point for free form -thinking . wondering too about how you"attached" all the parts together.

    Very nice! A sort of steampunk zombie attack medallion...

    Thank you kindly! I couldn't resist, and after all.... why let a perfectly good zombie attack go un-noticed.

    How beautifully vile of you! That looks excellent and well made, the dolls arm contrasts nicely with the dirty and rough look of them gears and key...
