Gorgeous Literary Jewelry Can Fit Back Into The Books They’re Harvested From

literary jewelry

There are very few things in this world that warrant the destruction of a book. Artist Jeremy May of Littlefly maaaay be one of these exceptions thanks to his amazing one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. The pieces are created by laminating together hundreds of pages from old, discarded books—shaping them into rings, bracelets, necklaces, and more before being finished with a high gloss coating.

These beautiful pieces of jewelry are all carefully cut from the books so that they fit snugly within the excavated space—like a hidden jewelry box with a single treasure inside.
