The Most Important Ball of the Lot by Delmorii The Most Important Ball of the Lot by Delmorii
So lately I've broken a lot of stuff. Not on purpose, I swear this stuff just breaks lol. I accidentally snapped my boyfriend's wristband that he wore for like eleven years then gave to me to wear. Then I wore out the little ring thingy on a celtic cross necklace (while I was twisting the cross in my hand aimlessly, it weakened the plastic ring that held the cross to the string) he bought me, though my dad looped it through the holes in the cross so I can still wear it. And then for Christmas he bought me this Snitch necklace, WHICH I ADORE BECAUSE IT'S ALL JINGLY AND I CAN FIDDLE WITH IT.

But I think I opened and closed it too many times because the hook that's supposed to hold it shut is like... pulled back into the clock, and there's no latch on the other side for it to hold on to, so now it always hangs open. I'm going to ask a jeweler to fix it, though I'm scared it'll cost a lot for them to fix it. Sadface.

I was taking pictures of it for Meg, hoping she could fix it (she's in college to train to be a ferrier, which also entails blacksmithing), but it's too tiny to fix with an anvil. My camera is usually suckville when it comes to focus, but I switched the macro zoom on it and suddenly BOOM, BEAUTIFUL PICTURES. So here you are.

For those waiting on your half of the art trade, I have 3 to go. I'm stuck on one in particular, but I'll get all of them done by Monday.

The pictures look great!! I love it :D
Meanwhile, considering the necklace, I think I know what the problem might be. I was warned by my sister that when I close it, I should push down the button thing (I forget what it's called, don't judge me xP ) before closing it otherwise it might break... so if you haven't been doing that, that's probably why xP
I don't know anything about how easy it is to repair, though, by the way... so... yeah, sorry... derp xP
Unless you've already gotten it repaired... I didn't realize you submitted it in January until I finished typing... so... uhh... derp... again :XD:
I love this, though. I have the same necklace and it's awesome!! I get so many compliments on it xP

Thank you!<3

And yeah, that's exactly what I was doing, so I guess that's what did it. And funny story actually, I was visiting my mom and my little sister jumped on me while I was sitting on the couch, and twisted the bottom part to the side. As I was trying to straighten it back, I realized I could close it because bending it to click together again would turn it and give it some... whats the word, force? I understand it but don't know how to explain it, haha!

And me too actually, at my school everyone tells me they like it. n_n
