Embedded Vintage Compass

I take pleasure in the discovery of old vintage items, so when a unusable compass found its way into the trash, I took it upon myself as a goal of finding this piece a proper home. With great delight I found a way to frame its beauty of timeless aging, and decided to hand whittle a exotic wooden cocobollo shell. To add to its make-shift appearence, I accompanied it with a braided yarn and leather chain, with the bottom half rapped in waxed cord. Most of this necklace is indeed recycled. But through this attempt, I hoped to have given back the life to these unusable scraps by adding a little charm and proper craftsmenship to the mix.
