Secret Envelopes?

Today I finished a batch of pendant necklaces. They are basically tiny leather satchels that each have a variety of beads dangling from the front flap. To prepare the leather I painted on it and added a shimmery finish. I hand-sewed the sides with either matching or contrasting thread and the whole things are hung on a crocheted cord made of black waxed linen. They were fun to make and I'm thinking they could be used to conceal a love note, or a special picture or any kind of small secret.
