    I struggled with a length I wanted.
    I've made so much jewelry over the years to know neck size and what a person find comfortable vary like night and day..

    So if it can slide over you head with easy it's good.
    So for myself that's about 28 inches , the book would then lay in the middle of my boobs.

    I admit I didn't measure, sme I made adjustable and some just really long so everybody can adjust themselves. I used cotton cord that has a leather look and I used ribbon as well for the necklace part.

    Yeah, I love it when people notice something odd about my home made jewelry and then try very hard to figure it out without staring And of course I offer no explanations, I am just cruel like that...

    I finally posted out my mini books to you moonrose, I put the books into a padded envelope (you can use that for the returns) inside an outer padded envelope for extra protection.

    Gemininorn, your son is such a smartie! Good for him! I am a born "upcycler, but not what I call a "real" artist. But of course even upcycling and gardening and designing things, IS a type of art. I just can't "SEE" things in my head when I try to draw, its rather frustrating. I made my "necklace" parts from real necklaces. I have a couple of 2nd hand stores that I can purchase necklaces at cheaply. I only like "vintage" or unique ones, so I was fortunate to find a few to use and I tweaked them. I can take pics, but can't seem to format the pictures to fit on our site. My technical skills are poor.

    I have yet another question. I am just full of them.

    Can we use any form of binding for the book?

    Is it too late to jump in? This is an amazing idea and I would love to. I do realize its about a month out but I think I could still do it.
