Thanks very much folks, much appreciated ;)
I forgot to add the size. Its the smaller version.
Can't think why on earth I bought it, it looks almost parasitic ;D

It's the two eyes and the smug grin that "appear" in your photo that make it look as if it's eaten something good, that it shouldn't have.  ;D

I'd fret about slashing my wrist unintentionally, wearing that.  :o

Ooer I hadn't noticed that in the photo. How bizarre :o ;D
I tried it out with my one and only bracelet and its not the most stable of things, and can easily be knocked over.
Its a better design for a coat hanger methinks.
