Day 11: Found Object

I love going for walks on my parents' farm, it's bright and serene, and as I child I usually walked with my eyes down looking for bits of treasure beneath my feet. My usual finds included bits of glass and a penny or two, but a few weeks ago while I was walking I found some discarded shells, and not the sea-loving kind. Our neighbors shoot targets for fun and this brass shell was left behind. I thought it would make a great piece of jewelry so I had my dad drill a hole in the tope of the casing and wired a large black vintage bead through it and attached it to a necklace that I built. My assignment to you is to make something incorporating a found object, I really want to see what you come up with!!!
