Portable Magic

Sweet, little book necklace lockets featuring the iconic bee have just arrived in my shop. These are handmade by Lori using archival prints that I send her. The base locket is made here in America by a family owned manufacturer. I had Lori add 16 and 20 inch rolo chains to them.

"Books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind."
~James Russell Lowell

When you open them there are two recesses to add you favorite photos, artwork and or a tiny love note for your beloved.

"Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own."
~ William Hazlitt

"Books are a uniquely portable magic."
~Stephen King

Speaking of books, Martha the knitter of our crochet pouches for our natural perfume, has just created the most beautiful bookmarks. I can't decide which is my favorite, perhaps this one featuring an oak leaf and acorn.

Ah, and more book inspiration, here is a sweet animated short created by illustrator William Joyce titled "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore", enjoy!
