I created these pendants with story illustrations clipped from two old Readers Digest volumes of condensed books.
The books were part of a three box inheritance from Heather of ReaDo, a local Etsy seller who makes these real snazzy purses with old hard book covers. These are books she can’t use but I might be able to use as binding for that homemade paper I’ll be getting to before the summer is over.
Anyway, I adhered the clippings with a shimmering silver modge podge, then “weathered” the edges with a knife and file before applying two coats of laminate/diamond glaze to seal.
Boring? Maybe but I think they look awesome.
Now… What to hang them from? Suede cord, wooden beads, copper chain?
