Necklace from an antique bronze lion's foot

A necklace from a claw foot off my great-grandmother's coffee table.  (Two of the claw feet were missing, so I will be restoring the table using four found vintage feet.  Meantime, I swiped one of the original feet for this necklace.)  I used the ready-made holes in the metal, and made a chain necklace using some gorgeous porcelain beads to complement.  It's a bit weighty, but very wearable, since the clawfoot and beads are hollow.  New life from an heirloom - love it!

Pattern or design used: My own design - Michelle L.
