A Little Book Love

So shoot me, I am behind the times...  Anthropologie had book necklaces for sale last spring for over $100.00.   Not something I would buy, but definitely something I would copy!  And these are sooooo much fun to make.   Sweet little books.

Look how a little patience, old book pages, leather scraps from old wallets, and some jewelry making bits and pieces can come together to create a tiny bit of magic.

A little journal for tiny notes!

Should it be a necklace, a keychain, or both?  I've hung the books on the ball chain on my rearview mirror 'cause it makes me smile when I look at it.  And smiling on the way to work in the morning is a good thing....

I also forgot just how much better pictures I can take with this lens.

Big books and little books. 

 I think I will make some more of these.  A girl can never have too many books and journals can they?

 Perhaps even a short story should be written to exist in a tiny book....

$100 or free...  I like the free option!  Sorry Anthropologie...
