Paper Rings Made from Books

It might not look it, but the ring above is literally made from the pages of Oliver Twist. Artist Jeremy May has devised a process for transforming books into jewelry using 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.
