Necklace With Quick Quotes

Hello friends!  Today I wanted to share a fun, steampunk style necklace. I've used Maraschino Cherry Powder Puff Chalking Ink on the Chipboard Gears.  On the large gear, the ink was applied directly to the chipboard gear.  The small gear has been painted with White Gesso and then inked.  The paper that's used as a backdrop is Tin Type.

I bought a necklace kit and the chain at our local Dollar Store.  The large center piece of the necklace was part of the kit.  It's layered on the large gear and adhered with Quick Dry adhesive.  The small gear is layered on top of the center piece.  The little rust colored bulb was purchased in the Auto Department and I've wrapped silver wire around the base of the bulb.  Using the chain fron the original kit, I've added a layer of chain near the bottom of the necklace.
