Littlefly Literary Jewels

Jewelry fashioned from books never fails to attract attention.


True, that attention is occasionally not of the most flattering type, as some believe cutting apart a still-readable book is a sacrilege.


For those who are fine with the idea of bringing new life to an old tome though, enjoy a look at these handsome art objects made by UK paper artist, Jeremy May of Littlefly Literary Jewels.


Jeremy cuts hundreds of pages from the core of well-read books and laminates them, creating one-of-a-kind rings, necklace pendants, earrings, and bracelets.


Each piece is given a high gloss coating as the finishing touch before it is delivered inside the book... actually within the same cavity from which it originated.


I find it intriguing that text - albeit blurry - is visible in some of the pieces.


Jeremy accepts custom orders... send him a favorite book and he will turn it into an eye-catching/conversation-starter piece of jewelry.


Thanks to Joel Ng, @jocundist, for introducing me to Littlefly Literary Jewels via one of his always interesting tweets.


If you'd like to see more of Jeremy's work, there are many additional pieces in the Littlefly Literary Jewels galleries.

By the way, giveaway winners of the Wizard of Oz iPad app were selected on Friday by a random number generator. Congrats to lizardek and komnatachista, the delighted winners!

And for those of you who are interested in quilling, a blog hop was launched this past weekend. It starts at The Sweet Spot, takes you all around the world, and huzzah!... there are a few giveaways along the way.
