Stringing Challenge

This is my first time entering Stringing's reader challenge. The theme is Poetry and Prose. I made this necklace from an old broken pin. It's iridescent white with a drawing of a person giving a bouquet to another person. It was made in Czechoslovakia, probably in the 1930's or 1940's (I think).
Here's the link. You need to be a member of the "Beading Daily" community, which just means you subscribe to the free emails. I don't know if it will accept votes if you are not a member, but I figure most bead bloggers are probably members. If you aren't, the emails are mostly fun to read, and sometimes give me new ideas.
Stringing Poetry & Prose challenge:

My design is #18, if you feel like voting for me.

More "junk"

I am slowly getting photos of the remaining necklaces I made from my Mom's girlhood treasures (junk).
This necklace is made from an overall hook. Can you see it under there, it's to keep the shoulder strap up. And also, a tiny lock & key that was in her box. I added the filigree and hammered ring, and some vintage crystal beads.

Such priceless treasures! (well, they are to me, now)
