Jewelry Made From Vintage Books By Jeremy May

Posted on Other Stuff 15

What do you do with old books? Store them in a bookshelf, maybe give them away? But have you thought about turning them into exquisite jewelry? British jewelry artist Jeremy May has.

Jeremy May has captured the beauty of paper via a unique laminating process. Littlefly paper jewelry is made by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss,” reads the artist’s website.

The idea behind his jewelry is that no two pieces are the same: “Each piece is impossible to replicate, and is unique to the wearer.

Precise cutouts turn into modern looking rings, bracelets, earrings and so on, bringing life back to your favorite classic books.
