Man Creates Unique Jewelry Using Pages of Vintage Books as Material

No, you didn’t read the title wrong. Jeremy May, a London based jewelry maker, decided to use a unique material to make rings, bracelets, and necklaces. He laminates hundreds of pages of vintage books, shapes them into the desired form and then applies a high gloss.

This allows him to create a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry that is, according to Jeremy, impossible to replicate. The jewelry also ends up having visible snippets of text or photographs, providing even more special appeal to the pieces.

You can check out some of this amazing jewelry below.

A year ago, during the 'Metamorphosis: The Art of Altered Books' exhibition, I teamed up with the Fuller Craft Museum to hold a contest. People were asked to send a description of their favourite book and to explain why it was significant in their lives. The winner receive a custom-made piece from their favourite book. Denise LeBlanc was the lucky winner with her book "Angle of Repose" by Wallace Stegner (1971). . . . . #ring #paperjewelry #paperjewellery #handcrafted #madeofpaper #ecojewelry #artjewelry #paperartist #oneofakind #littlefly #contemporarycraft #jeremymay #paper #unique #contemporaryjewelry #contemporaryjewellery #wearableart #wearablesculpture #jewellery #jewelry #paperart #book #bookart #angleofrepose #wallacestegner #sculpture #art #vintage #fullercraft @fullercraft
