Ode to a Kitchen Cabinet Backplate!

Oh, WoodenBee, for the past two months I have been looking at the cabinet back plate that I purchased from you and dreaming of what I would create with it.  Well, the time is here and I would like to introduce you to this art deco work of art to wear.  This design may have to become something I create on a regular basis, now that I have the kinks worked out.  This particular necklace has quite a story in it's parts and pieces.  Of course the filigree pendant is a salvaged cabinet back plate, but the center piece is a found button placed where the knob would sit.  And last, but certainly not least, is the prism tear drop which was given to me from a friend's mother's jewelry collection.  Oh, the stories these jewels tell!
