This literary jewelry is made from vintage books

By laminating hundreds of the paper pages of vintage books together and then finishing them with a high gloss coating, artist Jeremy May is able to create these marvelous pieces of literary jewelry.

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.

He's made rings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants, and earrings in this method. Take a look.
