Hey Allan, if we meet, I will impart some photoshop tricks to you!:-) And you can then work magic on your pics. glad you like the treatment:-)

was inspired by the necklace..since it is inspired from working tools...nail...a vintage work manual:-P

Allan said...

Tom said...

The only thing I know with photo manipulation is cropping. Haha. The time you've spent making this is well worth it. There's another Tom here? haha. Hello other Tom! :-)

Kevin @ myMANybags said...

Hi Anony,

the length of the chain when looped, is 24cm. It is not a very long chain. so total length os 48cm approx.


And Tom,

thanks! Photoshop is fun. you must go try it!
