but still lovely to wear! I have always had a bit of a thing for safety pins but was never brave enough to try the through the nose variety. When I saw this necklace by No Tomorrow I just couldn't say no.
No, they aren't functional and yes, I probably could have achieved much the same look by grabbing a handful of real safety pins and linking them together myself. But I didn't. So there.
Now,if I'm ever in a public place and discover that my hem has come undone, I can rest assured that people will be so busy admiring my necklace that they won't have time to notice the trailing hem! ( of course,they could be busy wondering if I realise that I have a string of safety pins around my neck- either way , I still get away with the fallen hem!)
Oh and by the way I joined in a bit of a fun swap currently doing the rounds of the Land of Craftblog.
Not sure where it started but Pay it Forward seems fairly stress free ( given the time frame!) and everyone get's a prize! This is the "promise"...
I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don't know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week... ... but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog
So if you are one of the first three to request to play along , and
agree to post the same promise on your blog, then I will make sure a
small surprise will show up in your mailbox in the next year (
hopefully it won't take me that long !).
