Handmade Recycled Book Jewelry: Review, Giveaway and Coupon Code

Despite having an eReader, I greatly prefer reading print books. However, I hate to see old books end up in the trash. One solution is to resell them at used bookstores, like the one we have at my local library. However, Trashy Crafter has come up with another solution for old books: make jewelry! This mother/daughter team takes damaged and outdated books and turns them into beautiful bracelets, necklaces, earrings and lanyards. They do this by removing pages from old or damaged books, cutting them into strips, and rolling them into beads. It’s also a lot of fun because you can wear reminders of your favorite reads!

Since one of my favorite books is Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, I selected a bracelet for review made of pages from a Pride and Prejudice book. I love it! Each piece of jewelry is unique because every book is unique, and different colored beads are used with the book beads. Check out some of the bracelets below:

Twilight Bracelet

Mortal Instruments Bracelet

Eat Pray Love Bracelet

As you can see, the bracelets come with 2 or 3 pieces. There are also earrings, necklaces, and lanyards like those featured below.

Pride and Prejudice Earrings

Beauty and the Beast Necklace

Goldilocks Lanyard

These items are so unique and pretty. They make great gifts for people who love to read! I hope you’ll check out the recycled book jewelry at www.etsy.com/shop/TrashyCrafter. Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day are coming up. Use the Discount Code below to receive 15% off your purchase!
