I recently made this necklace. (I hope this is in the right place, it's not exactly a recon...)

I used microscope slides I cut and then foiled and soldered with lead free solder. This is the front:

The back (which this piece is important to the story):

And this is the full picture of the cover I used so you can see it better:


I did this because I learned that the book companies wanted to change the cover of the book because they didn't think that someone of color on the book cover sold well. The full soapbox post is here: http://melissawatercolor.blogspot.com/2010/07/on-my-soap-box-on-my-wishlist-and.html. I am not asking any compensation for it so I also felt I could give it away on my blog. I thought it was a fun way to protest, promote a good book, and have some fun. Think is works?  Undecided

I think that is a lovely idea! I haven't had a chance to read the book yet but I picked it up because of the cover.  I found it quiet beautiful! The necklace you made for it as well is beautiful, good job and good luck!
