2″ x .5″, found objects

Watching my daughter enter the pre-teen years makes me think about my own, with the trappings of childhood still filling my room while I longed for independence.  We just got her a sim card for an old cell phone so that she can call and text when she’s walking home from school with friends. It’s a real step toward independence, but with a string still tied to home.  This pendant is made from sim cards and my old brownie pin, new and old symbols of that in-between period.  I threw in some screws to hold the fragile balance all together.
