literary accoutrements

i really like books. and decorating with them. clearly.

i had an old black leather ballet shoe which i cut to the same size as a few antique dictionary page pieces. x-acto knives are MAGIC, y'all. i used a small jewelry ring to attach the little book to a chain i had on hand.

    I LOVE this necklace and it is the most creative thing I have ever seen!

    How did you attach the little pages? I've been wanting to make one of these forever!

  2. you're too kind! all i did was staple the pages in the center, fold them in half (over the staple) and cover the outside with a leather scrap from the outside of a ballet shoe. :)
    happy crafting!
