I had a load of fun making this charm necklace.

I decided to get super industrious and custom make my own "needle" To fit the Super thin Plastic coated wire into the binding of the book.
I made it by cutting a piece of stainless steel wire on an angle, Then creating an eye loop on the end.  I needed a longer needle and voila!

The pencil is hand carved from a miniature normal sized pencil then to sit in as the "copper top" it is stainless steel wire. Hook looped onto a thin wire strand that sits inside the binding. The wire strand moves up and down so when wearing the necklace the pencil is snug at the base but when you need to jot something down, It slides down about two inches.
Placed it on a hand made leather strap.The paper is pre purchased recycled paper.
