Pick a word, any word, and I will make you an original word pendant! I have a big, old fat, dictionary full words, definitions and illustrations - Webster's "New" 20th Century Dictionary.

Each of my dictionary word pendants is sits in a 18 x 22 mm bronze finish setting behind a thick glass dome. Each word is original and cut from a respectably aged copy of Webster's Dictionary The drying process creates cracks, bubbles and slight blueish color which contributes to each piece's individuality and its vintage feel. The pendant comes with a 16 inch bronze finish chain.

When my father graduated from Berkley in 1965, his best friend gave him a massive 6 inch thick edition of Webster's Dictionary. I used to love leafing through the pages, reading definitions and looking at the illustrations. I was sure all the words in the world were to be found here. Its way out of date now and in serious disrepair. I cannot bring myself to throw it out, but I really do enjoy transforming this old forgotten book into something to be worn and enjoyed. These words will now get to travel!

Convo me with your ideas or questions. I am happy to collaborate!
