World's Tiniest Camera

I fell in love with these camera necklaces I found on Etsy a few weeks ago. I was really tempted to buy one, but since I'm on tight budget I decided to see if I could craft one myself instead.

I visited our local bead store and was hoping to find a few camera charms to choose from. They only had one kind - but I was just happy/lucky to have found one at all! I got some chain, some jump rings, a clasp, a rhinestone and the camera charm. In total, I spent $2.91 (plus tax) on this necklace. It took less than 5 minutes to put together too.

I posted the extra charm and rhinestone so you could see the two separate.

You can find some of the camera necklaces for pretty cheap on Etsy, but don't forget you have to pay the shipping too!
