Old Book Pages Transformed Into Beautiful Unique Jewelry

A designer creates a bridge between timeless literary pieces and jewelry

London artist Jeremy May discovered a way he can use old book pages: by turning them into pieces of jewelry.

Literary Jewels aims to make a link between literature and jewelry, while highlighting both at the same time. May cuts through old books, removing hundreds of sheets of paper together in a desired shape. He then uses a laminating process to give the paper a high gloss appearance. Once the jewelry is formed, he then inserts the jewelry back in the book, into a perfectly-cut hole. Every piece of jewelry cannot be replicated as it shows the text and images in the book, as if giving wearers a peek through what the book is about.
