This Is Halloween

I had a tiny length of cast silver twig left from a previous project and I was wondering what on earth I could do with it. It occurred to me that it might make a good broom handle. 

 I inherited some embroidery threads that were owned by my great grandmother (she had a seriously impressive array of colours in an old biscuit tin) so I soldered a small jump ring to one end of the twig and created a mulberry coloured silk tassel, tying it with a contrasting amber brown colour. 

I've added an earring post so that it can be worn as an earring. It is long enough so that it just brushes your shoulder (please forgive the pun!)

I've placed it next to a doll's house sized broom for comparison.
