Thimble Necklace

An inexpensive score at flea markets and on Etsy—usually less than $5—a vintage thimble can become a playful pendant in no time. Just use a small hammer and a two-penny nail to punch a tiny hole in the center of the thimble's top. Insert a flat head pin through the hole from the inside, so the pin's head remains inside the thimble. Twist the pin's exposed wire into a closed loop with needle-nose pliers, then use the pliers to attach a 6-mm jump ring to the loop ($1.27 for 10; consumercrafts.com). Thread the pendant onto a chain necklace ($7 for 18";brooklyncharm.etsy.com), and count the lucky recipient charmed, for sure.

What do you think of this gift idea?

If you flip it around you could actually use it to hold pins when you're sewing.

Hmm not for me.  But if someone I knew made it I would wear it.

Interesting. I wouldn't wear it though. Maybe for someone who sews a lot would find it cute.
