They can be worn as pendants, earrings, charms, or strung up for bookish decoration around your home. Microscopic notes can be written inside; perhaps you’ll make an adorable library of books for your pocket! Earring hooks and necklace chains will be provided in class. Whether you intend to wear these yourself or gift them to a friend, they will be ready to showcase when you walk out of this three-hour class.
