What is Gilli's Flowers Book Shop?
Gilli's Flowers Bookshop is a unique range of hand folded origami book themed jewellery and gifts. All the paper elements are hand folded using paper from a large range of pre-loved copies of classic novels plus a few made from vintage sheet music.
Once folded, all the paper elements are carefully finished with several coats of good quality waterproof varnish to add shine, strength, and water resistance, meaning that all pieces are more durable than you would expect (although not waterproof).
Gilli's Flowers Bookshop has an evergrowing selection of books for you to choose from and whatever your taste in books there will be something for you. All the books used are pre-loved and tatty so coming to the end of their lives as books to be read so this gives them a new life and means you can celebrate your love of reading or share a book that is close to your heart.
The wrapping used is plastic free and sent out in cardboard boxes or recycled padded envelopes.
I am proud to have won a Theo Paphitis award for my jewellery and have also been crowned the "Queen of" Origami Jewellery. I have also been featured in Making Jewellery issue 128.
