literary jewels

Paper is many things: a carrier of text, illustration, history and emotion.

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.

these rings are some of the most brilliant i have seen in a very long time. gorgeous. unique. and made of a book!! what? yes! want proof? the book from which your ring was born becomes your ring's unique gift box. you can even contact Littlefly to have your favorite book turned into your soon-to-be-favorite ring. a truly original and beautiful idea. can you tell how much i love it.
