Vintage bangle created from a 1937 Webster’s Dictionary book pages
This item is made from layered book pages from a re-purposed 1937 Webster’s Dictionary fused together with leather trim to form a unique piece of jewelry. It beautifully holds 77 year old pages.
This bangle takes on the texture and feel of wood – which was the papers original origin. It’s a wonderful experience to see and feel this work of art after it’s been formed into it’s new shape. People will be amazed to know that an actual book was re-purposed to form this unique jewel.
Brown leather lines the inside and is broken by two gaps, one displaying my signature and one displaying layers of pages. Leather lines the bottom as well. The pages and leather have been hardened. The leather and pages feel as hard as wood and will not bend under normal use. The bangle has been finished with a gloss clear coat which gives it a wonderful shine. The outer diameter of the bangle is 3.75″ and it has an inner diameter of approximately 2.55″ and fits the average female wrist size.
It takes up to 8 weeks to completely finish one piece. I really enjoy seeing the final results.
