Paper jewellery and art objects bring new life to old books
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 through the object, only exposed at the surfaces – giving a tantalizing glimpse of the book within.
Jeremy May was born in Suffolk (England). He studied Landscape Architecture at the University of Greenwich in London, where he lives and works.
