Literary Jewels by Jeremy May

These are just gorgeous. A fantastic concept AND beautiful objects. That's like 10/10.
"Jeremy May has captured the beauty of paper via a unique laminating process. Littlefly jewellery is made by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss. The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewellery re-inserted in the excavated space."

I would LOVE one of these. The question is which book to use? Two strong contenders are Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami and  The Catcher in the Rye by  J. D. Salinger.

Story dice

I love this idea, gonna have to make some for Oli.

In fact it's worth having a browse through much Holly Ramer's blog as there's some really lovely projects she's done like this cool Richard Scarry stuff.

Paper Wonderland!

Oh yes, the title does indeed look like it does this credit. I would have died for this when I was 10. I still squeal at it now at 34. When I was at Uni I made a paper sculpture of a friend's head - needless to say it wasn't terribly flattering!

The Secret Garden Project

It looks like the 'Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven' is only a sculptural installation but I'd love it if birds were happy to live like this - I'd love to see these around the place.
