Industrial Chic Blog Hop - Words to Live By Book Necklace

In my previous blog post, I told you about the Industrial Chic Blog Hop I am participating in this month, and I also showed you the goodies I was given to make into art.  I ended up using 2 of the 3 packages of supplies I received and this is what I created:

This is my "Words to Live By" mini book necklace.  I removed the pages of ephemera contained within the Industrial Chic metal tag pendant and replaced these with handmade pages made with beautiful religious images and quotes from Catholic saints.  I added a metal lace filigree finding to the bottom of the book, along with some decorative ribbon-yarn and small cross charms.  An image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary was affixed to a domino and attached to the front of the pendant.  The necklace is comprised of 2 Industrial Chic charms, along with black pearls and crystals beaded rosary-style to complete the look.

Full view of necklace.

One of the book pages; this one features the Virgin Mary with her parents and a quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.

This page features St. Elizabeth of Hungary feeding the poor along with a quote from St. Gregory Nazianzen.

This page features Jesus and a young girl accompanied by a St. Faustina quote about forgiveness.

Detail view.

I want to thank the folks at Industrial Chic for inviting me to participate in this blog hop and for my free goodies.  I really enjoyed the challenge of creating from the supplies I was given.  I can't wait to see what the other participants came up with.  Be sure to check out my previous post for the list of participants and links to their respective blogs.
