This is my "Words to Live By" mini book necklace. I removed the pages of ephemera contained within the Industrial Chic metal tag pendant and replaced these with handmade pages made with beautiful religious images and quotes from Catholic saints. I added a metal lace filigree finding to the bottom of the book, along with some decorative ribbon-yarn and small cross charms. An image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary was affixed to a domino and attached to the front of the pendant. The necklace is comprised of 2 Industrial Chic charms, along with black pearls and crystals beaded rosary-style to complete the look.
