Show off your love of books with these lightweight, handmade book earrings.
These Maroon Leather Book Earrings were handmade with care and attention to detail, in my shop located in the Lake Champlain Islands of Vermont. Each mini leather book is created individually, including gilding the design onto the leather myself. Created with upcycled materials from old books, as well as recycled materials from my larger book creations.
The watermark you see in the last photo is from the actual upcycled paper used for the pages in these miniature book earrings.
Each book contains marbled endpapers in the front and the back, making each earring as real and unique as the books they are created from.
The custom design on the leather covers and spine are personally created. The gold or silver is gilded onto the high-quality goat leather individually, using a method requiring the proper tools, timing, pressure and heat.
The leather books measure 1/2" wide by 9/16" tall and 3/16" thick. They are small and lightweight so they won't pull on your ears
The ear wires are a high-quality surgical steel, making them friendly to the sensitive ear.
