'Book lovers' takes on a whole new literary meaning with Jeremy May's Literary Jewels collection. As a British jewelry artist, May hand-crafts a variety of rings, bracelets and necklaces from the pages of 'dusty old tomes,' each accompanied with its own personal significant history.
Using a careful process of layering, compressing and lacquering of cross-sections of old books, Jeremy May's Literary Jewels collection is a perfect antique-looking piece to share.
Implications - These jewelry finds embrace the nostalgia associated with the printed word. With contemporary culture surging on into the digital revolution, many printed commodities are becoming out of date. Companies that manage to take retro finds and re-appropriate them with a modern twist will appeal to the many consumers looking to find comfort in products reminiscent of past times.
