Paper is many things: a carrier of text, illustration, history and emotion. ~ Jeremy May
London-based artist Jeremy May has discovered a way to capture the beauty of paper via a unique process that involves 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 jewelry re-inserted in the excavated space.
The great thing about the jewelry is that each piece is one of a kind. The beauty of the jewels extends within the piece: text and images pass all the way though the object, only exposed at the surfaces – giving a glimpse of the book within.
