Scope and content

This object is made of one continuous piece of silver colored metal. The end of the object is looped so that a string or can be placed through it like a large sewing needle. When pressed on one side the metal opens like a latch to allow the placing of looped string onto the needle end. The rest of the body of the needle is cylindrical before it flattens slightly and curves upward. There is a slight ridge that runs down the middle of the flat metal. The sides round outward before curving into the tip of the object. Attached through the end of the needle is a large piece of cream colored string. This string is looped and tied at the end with a knot. The end pieces of the string are fraying slightly.
