Tag treasure

Dreaming of fall, I pulled out some chocolate freshwater pearls and pale grey glass Czech beads for some autumn inspiration.
(sidebar - YAY! college football!)
I wanted something with a little industrial chic edge ~ junky, yet still elegant?
I remembered I had an old locker tag I found while treasure hunting.
You know when something speaks to you ~ the right look, the right patina ~ treasure in the making
The locker tag became the base of a collector's pendant ~ rosary chain tag, Mary medal and rhinestone remnant

Originally, this was supposed to be a bracelet.
Tinkering and rearraging later . . .  
necklace it is.

Are you ready for pumpkin spice latte's, hoodie sweaters and college football?
Bring it!
