She's smart and pretty!

I am really excited about this book! The idea and design for this necklace came to me all at once, kapow , and I couldn't resist making it. It's kind of steampunk or victorian, bold but still delicate. I absolutely love it! I want to keep it for myself, but I can't keep everything I make, right?

This necklace is so pretty and unusual, but the best part is that the book is fully functional. It's 80 pages of gold paper with gold endsheets, oyster-white Italian bookcloth and a stiff spine. It was even more difficult to make than the Handful of Stars book, but it still came out beautifully. It would be awesome to fill the pages with a poem, or a love note if it's given as a gift. I would melt if my man gave me this necklace, and wrote me a love note inside! (hmm, maybe he'll read this and get some ideas...) It's called the Well-Read Necklace, and it's listed on Etsy here.

Yeah, I think you do! And... *whispers* There may, possibly, be a bracelet in the works too, and another necklace. Maybe. ;)
