Victory is Mine

A short while ago I made this gun necklace by soldering and wire wrapping the chain by hand. I decided to call it "Victory is Mine." Partly because the gun is a vintage "Victory" from Hong Kong and partly because I think every girl should carry a gun ha ha. If not a real one then at least a fashionable one?? Obviously this necklace was not for everyone, but it did find a fabulous home. I am happy to report one bad-ass chica now wears this necklace proudly.
