Brass plate and book necklace, So Many Books

  • $30.00


Brass plate and book necklace for readers, So Many Books. A steampunk necklace perfect for a book lover with an antique brass plate and tiny vintage book. As an avid reader, I couldn't resist these little glass cabochons that read “So many books, so little time”.

I was able to make a small series of pieces using them, but as always, each one is a bit different. This necklace has the glass cabochon set in an antique brass winding spring case. The case has been mounted to matching watch plate. A vintage doll house “book” hangs below. The pendant hangs from a pair of salvaged chains, each 9“ ( 23 cm) long. It has an additional 2 1/2" of extender chain and a lobster clasp.

I mostly work with salvaged, vintage and antique materials so it is rare that I can confirm what exactly they are made of. If I know for sure, I'll include it in the listing, but otherwise I can not tell you what is in all the components. For this reason I do not recommend any of my pieces for those with metal/chemical allergies/sensitivities OR children!

Please Note: I have tried to get pictures that are as colour accurate as possible but they may appear different than life on your monitor.

My jewellery pieces are all one-of-a-kind artworks and I can not make multiples of anything. It may be possible, depending on the design, for me to create something similar if a group is needed, but even then it will probably be a very limited number.
