Bookish jewelry




My friend Darin sent me a link to a company called Littlefly that makes jewelry from laminated book pages. The jewelry is colorful, shapely and basically unrecognizable as text, which I like. The jeweler Jeremy May stocks a certain variety of titles/pieces in his online shop but you can also have a piece custom made for you out of any book that you choose. He makes your ring and then gives it back to you inside the book, in the little space he "excavated" to make the ring. The book is the jewelry box and also the material source. The whole things gives me goosebumps. What book would you like to wear on your finger?

Love this! I think I would like to have a ring made from a Jane Austen novel :)

I think I would want to wear, "Breakfast at Tiffany's " so some of Holly Golightly's style could rub off!

I would like Mother Goose ... I think it would be colorful and whimsical.
