“I have Loved you for a Thousand Years…
And I will Love you for a Thousand more”

This song sung by Christina Perry is not only beautiful and haunting, it has the power to transport one to a different place and time where love is Forever … Eternal. And age old love stories are written in books that are stained with the elements of time.

This mixed media necklace combines leather, metal, stained lace, stained paper, rusted mesh, clay and paint. It also has a vintage barrel key and blood red Garnet attached to the end of a 14 inch chain extension which you can wear it in the front.

This piece took me many hours to construct as each page is lovingly burned by incense and fashioned in a way that the burned hole in the middle of the page tapers towards a blood red heart. I have also included little features like miniature music notes, miniature love letters and miniature dictionary excerpts in between the stained blank pages.

* The mini book measures 40 mm x 30 mm, with a thickness of 20 mm
* The necklace is approximately 17 inches with a 14 inch extension which is a feature on its own

Best.Work.Yet.

I love the effect of the heart that still burns passionately and the effort of mixing it up for the pages. It's sad the the heart looks 'locked up' behind the wire gauze you placed on the book cover, but I'm guessing that's to keep the heart from getting knocked out? Or is it to trap it in the book of eternal love? :P

:kiss: thank you very much !!

LOL! "keep the heart from getting knocked out" ... i like that.
i just thought the feel of rusted mesh went with this design. sort of like something very old that you discovered in an attic, forgotten ... yet when someone finds it and opens it, they can still feel the strength of the energy that reside within, never fading. that is why the pages of the book can be opened, so that future generations may find it and retell it's love story :)
make sense?

hahaha!! i'm glad you think so ... i sometimes find it very hard to described what's in my head with words in the shortest way possible. becos it's like a movie montage going on in there ... it's frustrating when you want to tell ppl how you feel, and then you think ... if i did, it will be a 10000 word essay and no one would bother to read anyway ...
