I had found a bronze piece with an "A" on it and saved it to make something for my friend Adeline. I later found a tiger stone pin that used to have something glued onto it but throughout the course of its hard life, whatever that thing was has been lost. Adeline's favorite stone is tiger so I married the two to each other and am quite satisfied with the result.
I originally wanted to attach the "A" piece to a necklace or zipper pull or something but I liked the contrast on the stone. Also, I took some black thread and wound it to the top to make it look like it had been attached then ripped off of something (I'm into little details..)
I'm going to give her the pin tonight. Hope she likes it!
