British artist, Jeremy May says, "Paper is many things: a carrier of text, illustration, history and emotion." If paper is all that then books bundle those altogether. His amazing paper jewelry collection, Littlefly - Literary Jewels is made by laminating many pages together, carved into jewelry pieces, colored and then completed with a high gloss finish.

What's even more remarkable - the jewelry fits back into the book it came from! Instant packaging! He also offers custom work for those who want jewelry made from a particular book.
