I recently learned that a thimble, is a kiss according the story of Peter Pan. This was very interesting so of course I googled this tidbit and found this excerpt from the story:
“Surely you know what a kiss is?” she asked, aghast.
“I shall know when you give it to me,” he replied stiffly, and not to hurt his feeling she gave him a thimble.
“Now,” said he, “shall I give you a kiss?” and she replied with a slight primness, “If you please.” She made herself rather cheap by inclining her face toward him, but he merely dropped an acorn button into her hand, so she slowly returned her face to where it had been before, and said nicely that she would wear his kiss on the chain around her neck. It was lucky that she did put it on that chain, for it was afterwards to save her life.
Much later in the story:
John: That was no thimble…
Michael: That was a hidden kiss.
As a seamstress I loved learning this new information and had to make myself a kiss necklace so when people ask what is that I can say with enthusiasm… “Oh this is a kiss”
Use awl or nail to hammer a hole into the top of the thimble large enough to fit chain. I used a ball chain so I had to make the hole a little larger so the thimble can move easily along the chain. Once hole is created string on chain and wear. This is a very simple one.
