Jewelry Made From The Pages of Books

Craft & Design

My post about the book loom on Monday sparked a lot of commentary on destroying books in the name of craft. I’m curious how that conversation might change when folks see these amazing pieces of jewelry made from the pages of books from Jeremy May of Littlefly.

Littlefly jewellery is made by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss. The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewellery re-inserted in the excavated space.

I can only imagine how special it would be to receive a ring like this, made from the pages of a meaningful book. I’ve never been a girl with eyes for diamonds, but give me something like this and I’d be swooning. [via Swiss Miss]

    As a book lady, I’m never quite sure how I feel about the idea of using precious (to me) books to make other things. Even so, I have to admit that everything at Littlefly is absolutely stunning! :)

    Nope. Still not a fan of destroying books, ESPECIALLY meaningful books.

    (Plus, that ring looks way too thick to be comfortable, but I’m picky like that.)
