Sail the high seas! This extra long (28") necklace features one of our popular 20mm (3/4") Dewey Decimal charms. Along with your charm is a real watertight message bottle - silver bullet style with rubber gasket and glass inner capsule. Write a secret message, or keep medicine or a piece of treasure map safely tucked inside. Outer capsule is 1.5" long (38mm) and inner glass one is 1" long (25mm). This necklace looks nautically hip on both men AND women!

Silver tone chain is 28" long and is easily slipped over your head, or secured with the matching lobster clasp. Long necklaces are in this year, and can be worn with your favorite tee, dressed up with a skirt, or layered with other necklaces!

You can pick the (general) NON-fiction subject, like art, math, history, or science, and I will select the book/number for you, and will include the card the number was cut from so you know what book you're "wearing." Put your subject preference in the "notes to seller" at check out. If you do not pick a subject, I will select a card for you at random, but you can be sure it will be one fantastic book! Shipping includes tracking on this necklace on domestic shipments.

This listing is for ONE (1) Dewey luxe silver XL necklace with watertight capsule - do you need a larger amount? Feel free to contact me directly! Very cool gift for the librarian, bibliophile, or geek in your life! Awesome gifts for new graduates of MLS and MLIS programs!

I use a water resistant epoxy, but since one element of this necklace is paper, you should remove it before bathing or swimming.
