A Little Polymer Clay Book

Being that I'm a librarian and all, you know this was inevitable. I made a little polymer clay book. It's 1 & 1/2" x 1". I've been wanting to do this for awhile, and I think that for a first try it came out pretty good. I wanted to make it look like a really old book (those are the best kinds after all). For the cover I used brown clay which I textured. For the bands I applied some gold mica powder to give it a little color. The pages are a block of clay in layers of white and translucent clay. I was considering putting in actual paper but I wanted it to last for awhile.
I put a little hole in the top so I can eventually make it into a pendant if I want. It would be fun to hang it from a brass chain and wear it to work.
