Hocus Pocus Mini Book Necklace with Robin Dudley Howes
176 Race Street
I had such fun making these little books and you will too! In this class we’ll take the foundations of book making into miniature territory by scaling down and thinking “small”, making a book you can hold in the palm of your hand. I will show you how to make the whole book from scratch using my hand made molds or stamps, apoxie clay, and embossing tools as well as hand stitched signature pages. You’ll also learn how to give your book an antique leather look, how to apply eyelets, finish with layers of embellishment and as a bonus I’ll show you how to make the hand charm! If you choose to make your little masterpiece into a necklace bring something to hang it on like beaded chain or ribbon. You will love these little books! The book is only 2x2 inches with ½ inch spine.
For your convenience, everything you need to make your mini book necklace is included in your kit, well thought out, prepped and ready to assemble assuring a finished project. Most items you see in the sample will be provided in the kit or very similar. Feel free to bring any extra charms to personalize your piece.
