Remember a couple of weeks ago, I showed you this?
Well, it all started with watching a movie. A pirate movie. It involved a locket. And it got me thinking about how I would make a locket for the that particular character. Which resulted in the wired pearls and the shell in the above picture. And which just goes to show that you can find inspiration just about anywhere.
But that was just the start of it. I wanted to use materials that are from the sea or reminiscent of the sea (aside from the copper, of course - I use that because I love it). After meeting a few challenges with the actual locket, which is a sea shell and the back is copper, I ended up with this.
I'm not sure I'm finished with the locket yet - I'm still not sure if the inside needs something more. And if so, just what does it still need? Suggestions, anyone?
