Story teller jewelry April 17, 2007

Filed under: Jewelry — Kim @ 10:12 pm

This website has some fantastic jewelry. At least, that’s what I think. They make some beautiful jewelry featuring books. The pieces either come as a necklace or a pin. Each piece has a original story inside. Therefore the makers call it: ”Jewelry you can read”. Seems like a perfect combination to me!

There are 26 different stories available and different styles of books. Since I am a fan of silver, I love their silver books. And that is an understatement. You can find out more here.

Thanks to Sarah for the link.

Book bracelet April 3, 2007

There are bracelets and bracelets. This one is something else. I absolutely love it. It is handmade and it looks very romantic. Since I love lace and the bracelet has a little book on it, I am sold. I can see myself wearing it this summer with a pink top and some jeans. You can learn more about it, and see some more pictures, here.

Bookish jewellery March 26, 2007

I love jewellery depicting books. Sadly there is not too much around. Luckily, Sarah brought these to my attention. She had a bookish themed wedding last year, since she and her husband like to read. She wrote to me that she gave these necklaces to her bridesmaids. What a great idea! She also gave me a link to these earrings.

Then, something strange happened. As you probably know, I am getting married this year. And pretty soon too! On 25. May, I will say “I do”. My fiancé and I decided on a wedding cake that looks like a stack of books. In her e-mail, Sarah put a link to a photo of her wedding cake. Guess what? It is almost exactly the same as the cake we would like to have. Beneath you’ll see a picture of Sarah’s cake, isn’t it utterly fantastic?!

Silver book earrings January 11, 2007

These sterling silver earrings are quite nice. The first pear features a little bookworm on a book. The second pair are little open books that read “I love to read”. When you order, you can choose between hoops or wires. I think I would go for the bookworms on hoops.

Book quote bracelet January 3, 2007

Filed under: Gifts,Jewelry — Kim @ 2:04 pm

Most book gadgets seem to be made for women. Unfortunately. This bracelet looks very unisex to me. I love the quote on it that seems to be ‘hand written’: I cannot live without books. The bracelet is handmade of silver. You can adjust it to fit your wrist.
