This extra long (30") necklace features one of our popular 20mm (3/4") Dewey Decimal charms showing the world what you are passionate about (is it science? libraries? animals? art?). Accenting your pendant is a small skeleton key with a heart shaped detail. Further up the chain, about 2/3 of the way is a captured green milk glass bead, which becomes part of the chain, and when worn will rest lightly on your collarbone.

Aged brass chain is 30" 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! Last image is a close up detail shot of captured bead.

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!

This listing is for ONE (1) Dewey luxe brass XL necklace - 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.
