I have had this Victorian copper pin forever and I have tried to put it together in a wearable fashion a handful of times. Recently, a friend posted a picture on Facebook of a steam punk choker...and I saw the pins future. I sawed off the pin back and smoothed out the raw edges, drilled a tiny hole at the bottom for a dangle, added the rings (a perfect earring find turned necklace adornment) and simply added the thick gross grain ribbon. My favorite part of this necklace is not only how well all of this came together, but the simplicity and elegance of the the ribbon tied closure.
