I loved the shape of this mint tin and just knew it could be repurposed into something wearable. I undertook a Book Arts elective at Uni last Sememster so it seemed natural to make it into a wearable book. I think books are sometimes Talismans - I always read Agatha Christie when I have a lot going on - so I wanted to make this a bit of an amulet so I included lots of charms and amulets on the tassle. The book inside has affirming words that I stamped onto pieces of paper that had been decorated - mostly for other projects, and the front decoration is a domino. This was so much fun to make - I am planning another one for the SALA exhibition!

Great recycling - and it looks wonderful.
