Compendium of Curiosities, Week 17

Yes, I'm back from the cruise, though I think my head is still on board.  I'll begin blogging about all that in a bit, but first wanted to keep my streak going and create something for the C of C challenge.
This week, the technique involves one of my favorite materials for jewelry making:

If you click on the above link you'll wind up on Linda's blog and get all the details of this challenge, plus the wonderful giveaway that is up for grabs.
Here is a little pin I made:
I used some of Tim's Lost and Found paper on small fragment charms and attached them to a charm of a clothes hanger.  To make it a pin, I glued a tie tack back through the charm's hole and covered it with a half pearl.  
The photo is a bit blurry, but the piece is pretty and simple.
