1″ x 1.5″, found objects

When we’re planning art activities for the community, one type of activity is a “make-and-take”, where you can make something and take it with you when you finish.  In my house, what we do instead is break-and-make.  We were sorting pens this week and the broken ones got taken apart for the springs, the caps, the tubes.  When we had a broken keyboard it was deconstructed for parts.  And this pendant is one of the things we made.  I used the tip of a fancy pen, part of the deconstructed keyboard, and a handful of nails to make this beauty.
