Bookish Gift Idea #18: Littlefly Rings

Maybe yesterday’s minimalist book ring wasn’t your style. Want to wear the words you love—literally? Littlefly, a UK-based jewelry company, offers these gorgeous gems by designer Jeremy May. Explains their website:

Littlefly paper 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.

The ring above is made from Oliver Twist, but this one, made from For Whom the Bell Tolls, might be my favorite (ahem? Santa?):

Rings, as well as necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, are available through Littlefly (if you dare to ask the price—I didn’t!). They take custom orders as well.

Out of your budget? No worries. Check back here at the FWR blog every day in December for another bookish gift idea.
