Description

Most people have a strong connection to books.  I have found it fascinating to hear how and why people love to wear a book around their necks.

 

My mom has been wearing her book necklace for several years now and when people ask her about it an interesting conversation always follows.  She then asks them to sign it and write a word or two – it’s a way for her to collect memories of the people she interacts with.

 

A woman shared with me that she wears her book necklace as a talisman to remind her of the healing that has taken place in her life – books were a major part of her healing journey.

 

Another person shared that they use it to keep track of all of their passwords.

 

I’m curious to know how you will use yours.

 

This particular wearable book is made from exotic wood pieces given to me by my dear friend Tore Vollan who has since passed away.  You can read more about him in the Exotic Wood Books. 

 

Inside you’ll find Strathmore 400 Series drawing paper, medium surface (80 lb/130 gsm).  This paper works well with graphite pencil, coloured pencil, pen and ink, marker, soft pastel, mixed media and oil pastel; perfect for all your drawing and writing needs.  The pages have been aged to give them an old world look and feel and each section of pages is wrapped in book cloth made with eco dyed fabric.

 

Hand sewn with walnut Irish linen thread using the Coptic binding method and is finished with Coptic end bands which add stability to the book.

 

The chain is antique brass with a closure but can be cut down to a smaller size is desired.
