Years ago I found two old mechanical pencils in my great-aunt's tool shed. They didn't work anymore, but I thought they were lovely, so I've kept them all these years. I finally found a use for them and I'm thrilled.

I made this necklace with recycled, felted black, tan, and brown wool, a wooden button and three wooden beads. The focal point is half a mechanical pencil. (I think it's from the 40s or 50s, made of plastic to look like Tortoise shell.) The metal clip and hardware around the middle are beautiful. (There's still a bit of pink eraser inside.) I bound it all together with cotton hemp cord. It's all hand-stitched with embroidery floss.

The bag itself measures 1 3/4" x 5" (4.4 cm x 12.6 cm).

It hangs from a hand-dyed (by me) brown cotton cord which measures approximately 26" (66 cm) long.

I made it as jewelry, but also to carry a poem, prayer or inspiration close to your heart. So inside you'll find a long, narrow, brown piece of my painted paper with a piece of writing paper from my great-grandfather's bank account book from 1910 mounted to it. There you can write out anything inspirational you want and always carry it close. I love the idea of carrying secret messages to yourself.
