I made this ornament for my very dear friend who is separating himself from the anchor of alcohol addiction. Wandering in local antique stores, I found a beautiful old ornament with sea blues, and a curious antique dealer found the sailboat pin in a competitor’s case. I used white and red nail polish to change the sails from pink to white with the number 12 (his birthday is 12/12). A wine pendant that I had never worn makes an anchor.
The title of the ornament is “A Ship on Troubled Waters”
What other ideas would make for a good repurposed ornament with costume jewelry? I’d love to hear from people!
