Book Jewelry

Ich dachte eigentlich, ich hätte schonmal Schmuck aus Büchern hiergehabt, finde aber den Link nicht. Wie auch immer: Jeremy Mays schneidet Blöcke aus Büchern, laminiert die zusammen und formt daraus Ringe und Ketten und sowas.

Jeremy May has captured the beauty of paper via a unique laminating process. 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.

Each piece is impossible to replicate, and is unique to the wearer. The beauty of the jewels extends within the piece: text and images pass all the way though the object, only exposed at the surfaces – giving a tantalising glimpse of the book within.
