Top of the World Necklace

This $2.00 recent yard sale find has been calling out for some attention.  Someone had fun with a pen down in the southern hemisphere, so I didn't feel bad about repurposing it.  I'll do something with the other half of the world another time.  The Arctic Ocean looked like a good place to start....



I added some beads, a vintage rhinestone button in the center hole, and a little mother of pearl moon from an old earring.

Now the remainder of the northern hemisphere awaits a transformation.  I don't know....maybe a lamp, bowl, clock, hard hat?

  4. Love the necklace! I also have a tendency to look at things as to how they can be taken apart and pieces reused. :-D
    Enjoy your evening.

  15. I sold an old globe like this one and then discovered your wonderful reuse. I could have kicked myself for getting rid of it, after I saw this. Now I'm on the hunt for another one that I won't feel guilty about tearing apart. ;)
