This one started with a very small picture frame that I repurposed to hold a reproduction vintage photograph of a young lady who looks dressed to travel. At the bottom hangs a charm that reads, "blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures." In front of that charm dangles a fresh water pearl. The photograph has been sealed with several coats of epoxy resin. And this piece has a bonus message on the back! "The journey is the destination." And imbedded in the resin is a compass. Focal ensemble measures 6 1/2" from top to bottom. Chain measures 25". There's a lot going on in this piece which is mixed-metal. Wouldn't it be a great gift for the graduate who is about to travel the world?
