Literary Jewels


Artist Jeremy May carves holes into books and laminates the results in order to create rings. He makes jewelry out of books 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 jewelry re-inserted in the excavated space. Pictured above is a ring made from Margaret Atwood’s The Edible Woman.
