A little 'pins' experiment

I found these lovely vintage-looking pins and tried to create a short necklace.
I used leather from a pair of old shoes and a bike tyre.
With the wax/leathercord I made quipu knots .

Just a try-out !
Like it ?

What does the back of the pin look like?
They look like they will make nice rings or brooches as well :)

Ja, helemaal mijn stijl die vintage-looking pins! Ik zie mezelf wel zo een ring dragen. Breng je ze mee naar de markt?
Saludos de Trudis

The pins look gorgeous! And the knots turned out quite well - they give the necklace an ethnic touch :)

Chique !!!! Het doet me een beetje denken aan de Amerikaanse Bolo tie, maar dan véél en véél mooier ! M'n vader had er 30 jaar geleden zo eentje mee uit Amerika.
