Copper wire woven necklace, miniature book

This piece of jewelry was originally created for an exhibition of paper art with other like artists, another medium I love to work in. The miniature book for the pendant was fabricated from kozo, a Japanese paper, sewed and folded to create it’s present form. I used copper woven wire to encase the book into the pendant and to suspend it from a necklace.

The paper book is protected by an sealant, making it water resistant and protecting the paper as a wearable item.

The length of the necklace is 27 inches long though it can be shortened.
