I love the idea of wearing this necklace while decked out in actual textile herringbone. Alas, I do not have a rockin' herringbone suit or even a particularly nice jacket at this time and therefore I will let it go to somehow who does... Or someone who wants to rock it one way or another.

This glass pendant encases a beautifully detailed and unique illustration from an antique dictionary that I saved from a certain doomed fate (aka The Trash). Yes, under the definition of "herringbone" in one of my beloved dictionaries there is now a perfect and precise hole.

Comes on a 22 inch antiqued finish chain. Prefer longer or shorter chain? Just ask! I'm happy to switch it out to your preferred style at no added cost.

Yes, I use original vintage dictionary snippets! No scrapbooking paper, stampings or computer tomfoolery here. I get my beloved books from the trash, free piles, occasionally for a dollar or two at a thrift store and they are generally in pretty rough shape. If as a whole these old books are not fit for someone's bookshelf why not preserve what parts still ARE beautiful and display it for all to see and admire? So know that you will be wearing a little piece of history every time you put this necklace on. This is the only one of its kind.

Your piece will arrive beautifully wrapped for gift giving, even if the gift is for you!

The pendant itself is 1.5 inches
