buy me this: pencil shaving necklace

Here is a neat little necklace from Australian designer Victoria Mason – it is a sterling silver pencil shaving! I used to carefully make pretty flowers with pencil shavings when I was in grade school and a similar mentality drove Victoria to make her necklace:

“I used to try to save perfect pencil shavings. They looked so beautiful, especially if I’d sharpened a couple of different colours. But they’d never keep. I’d try to keep them whole for as long as I could but they never lasted for very long. Now I can make ones that do keep. And you can even wear them around your neck.”

More of her work at the link above – and yes, this would look LOVELY on me. ;)
