Cheap and Easy Pendant

Intro: Cheap and Easy Pendant

This is a cheap, rugged, and easy to make pendant. This is made from a "Pirate Compass" party favor I bought at a local store. This came in a package of 4 for a dollar. All I had to do was open it up and remove the fake compass needle and dial that were inside it. Here what I did was cut a circle of mylar to fit inside it, which I glued some plastic gemstones to, then put it inside and closed it up again.  The compass body is already gold-ish in color and doesn't need any repainting.

    I used to have the exact same compass!!!!
    How did you open it up without breaking it? I had to practically perform a surgical operation for mine, and it still cracked.
