Featured Item: Faux Leather Scroll Pendant by ladyartisan
BDC member ladyartisan has created an amazing pendant that does double-duty as a small notebook. How creative is that?
The scroll "cover" is made from a bendable polymer clay in a custom-mixed brown, textured on the outside and antiqued on both sides with dark brown acrylic paint to look like leather. It's lightly buffed to give it a gentle shine, enhancing the leather look.
The scroll is approximately 1.75" wide (45mm) and, when closed it's approximately 1" around (25mm) depending on how tightly you roll it when you close it. Open "flat," the scroll cover is 3.25" x 1.75" (85mm x 45mm). The design is a geometric triangle pattern.
The paper is Arches Text Wove and measures approximately 1.75" x 2.25" (45mm x 60mm). There are 5 sheets, attached with a single black, unwaxed linen cord looped through two holes at the top of the pages and the cover and then tied in a knot on the outside. This could be easily refilled with your own paper. There is a single gold jump ring for hanging this on a cord. The scroll is secured with a thin (I think it's 2mm) black, leather cord.
When closed, it makes a lovely and unique pendant. You could wear it around your neck or attach it to a keyring.
