A couple months ago, one of my facebook groups had a challenge to complete an elephant necklace in some fashion.
It's a 1928 piece that got reissued specifically for this group to play with. The base is hollow and you also got a glass cab to seal it with, the idea you could put anything in it and decorate the elephant how you wanted.
I immediately flashed to the 8 ball, not sure why... maybe because elephants never forget, so following that logic, they ought to know everything as well.
So I found a mini 8 ball, and took it apart ( let me tell you, that wasn't easy. took vice-grips, a hammer and a saw)
I carefully saved the fluid so the ball would work as well. I glued it all together with fish tank glue from the hardware store, and added crystals for just a touch of bling.
I did rip it apart. I have another idea I want to try, but I 've kept the decision die and maybe I'll do something with it again in the future.
It feeds the soul to try new things, even when they don't work out.
