OK – At a yard sale last year I found some old metal fuse boxes (1 1/2" x 1 1/2") with clear plastic covers that slid out to access the small fuses. I also found a tiny person (3/4") with a ball in her raised hands – in pretty bad shape.
The definition for "fairy" was cut out of a dictionary and glued to the back of the inside of the box. The fairie's ball was replaced with a flower and she was given wings (after all what's a fairy without wings?). Holes were drilled in the sides of the metal box and wire inserted to hold the cord necklace. Holes were drilled in the bottom of the box so leaves and flowers could be added to dangle. The back was sanded and stamped. One thing got glued to another and this pendant was born.
