About our Book Jewelry
Our family has been handcrafting book earrings, using our own handmade paper and unique marbled papers for over 20 years. Our book jewelry is worn and cherished by booklovers of all ages and makes especially perfect gifts for librarians, teachers, and book club members! Not only do we all love books, we can wear them!
Each of our books is made by hand using book-binding techniques very similar to full-sized, hard-cover books. They open easily and the interior pages are blank, using hand-made paper by Santa Cruz book artists Peter and D0nna Thomas.
Many of our books use hand-decorated marbled paper. Marbled paper is created by floating paints or inks on water, then paper is carefully placed on the water and the ink transfers to the paper. There are 11 different marbled papers, and a variety of other specialty papers. See all the paper choices on our Paper Colors and Styles page.
Our earrings are generally for pierced ears, but clip-ons can be made by special request (just email us a note after you place your order). Our French hooks use hypo-allergenic surgical steel and our 1" hoops are made from high-quality silver-filled wire.
Please note that every pair of our book earrings and book jewelry are made by hand from paper that is decorated by hand, so the exact patterns will always vary.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed, and (for a limited time) we offer free shipping on all purchases.
