This necklace is part of my "Functional Future" collection. More to come!

Decorative, found object jewelry is great for 100 years after the apocalypse, but what about right after it occurs? I doubt the first thing on your mind will be what earrings match your gas mask. This necklace is the first in a series of jewelry pieces I'm making that are beautiful, as well as functional, in case those Mayans are right...
This necklace features a bullet-shaped, black capsule. The top unscrews to reveal an empty, waterproof inside. Perfect for stashing matches, iodine pills, or whatever you please. Hanging next to it is a teeny compass, wrapped in brass wire. Despite its size, the compass actually works. These items hang from a vintage, gold-plated chain, adorned with African trade beads and bar links. The chain measures 24" and the capsule almost 2 1/2".

And if the end of the world doesn't come in your lifetime? Great for camping too! :D

This is a new shop and I don't have any feedback yet, but to view my 1000+ positive feedback on my other shop, please go here: outpost8.etsy.com. Also feel free to persuse my collection of video game geekery - including Fallout Nuka Cola jewelry. :) If you buy something from both of my shops, I will combine them into one package and refund you the excess shipping.
