This miniature book library necklace was a gift for my sister. She is a librarian and of course, loves books, so I made her some librarian bling.

I don’t normally work with leather because I’m a long-time vegetarian and animal-lover, but the Oakland Depot for Creative Reuse had some beautiful leather scraps, and I’m a lot more lenient when it comes to upcycling / reusing / used materials.
