Talk nerdy to me, baby! This necklace is made with a 3/4" glass dome, under which is featured Dewey Decimal numbers from vintage library catalog cards. These make awesome holiday gifts for men OR women - anyone who is a rabid reader or loves particular topic!

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 numbers were cut from so you know what book you're "wearing." 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 neato book!

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!

Your pendant will come with a 24" ball chain on which to wear it. I use a water resistant epoxy, but since one element of this necklace is paper, you should remove it before bathing or swimming.

FYI - The second photo shows the card this pendant was made with.

These make awesome gifts for bridesmaids OR groomsmen at librarian or bookish weddings, or for other events too. Need a larger amount? Feel free to contact me directly!
