Jeremy May has captured the beauty of paper via a unique laminating process. Littlefly paper jewelry is made by laminating hundreds of 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.

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 tantalizing glimpse of the book within.

how many times can you read a book before it gets wasted?

unlimited! Then it’s not recycling!

Better use old newspapers or magazines for make rings… Give the books to the childrens.

At least use old and/or crappy books. I agree with “luck”… this books can still be used.
Recycling is about re-using something that was going to be thrown as garbage. This books not only are really good, but they also are in very good shape.

Books are destroyed every day. He’s taking books that would go to a landfill and making something beautiful from them
