Green Varied Book Earrings - enlarged view
 
These are the earrings for book lovers, readers and writers.
Each pair is made individually
and is one of a kind.

I handcrafted the tiny books, which measure a half inch on each side, and assembled these earrings using beads recycled from discarded jewelry and metallic thread.

The books are real books with pages that actually turn. 
The pages themselves are tiny pieces of the pages of a discarded Jane Austen novel.

The covers are scraps of my decorative paper, a copy onto card stock of my own watercolor painting. 
I bound the books using a glue-based, drum-fold  binding technique.

                Signature Medallion

At the back of each book I have inscribed one of my
signature medallions,
 which also states the year the earrings were made.
