  • Book Jewellery | Paper2Pearls

    A guide to Gilli's Flowers Book Shop There are other shops that sell book jewellery, there are other shops that sell paper and origami jewellery but what makes Gilli's Flowers Bookshop unique is not just the way in which the two are combined, but the range of books I have available for you to choose from. For ease I have grouped together books in simple sections although there is some overlap between these. Some designs are available in all the books named here and some in just a few. However as I make all the pieces myself I can make most of the designs in any of the books listed in the five sections below. This is not a complete list of all the books I have ready to use and I have attached a list of those titles too so if you are looking for something in particular that is not stocked I'm happy to set up a custom order for you, either by buying a pre-loved copy of the book and adding the cost of this to your order or by asking you to scan or photograph a couple of pages from your chosen book and sending it to me. Although all pieces are carefully finished with several coats of waterproof varnish please note they are only water resistance as opposed to waterproof. All the pieces come together with a note giving the title of the book used in making them meaning they are perfect gifts. Any questions, please ask. Gilli Austen, Bronte and Alcott This section includes the first book that I started using for my jewellery and which remains probably the most popular one in my range, Pride and Prejudice. This range includes pendants which include a reference to key characters from the book used such as the names of Elizabeth and Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. It can take me quite a while to find suitable sections of text in making these pieces especially as I usually end up reading the book again while doing this! Book titles and authors in this section. Louisa May Allcott, Little Women Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice ​ Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre ​ Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights ​ ​ ​ ​ Children's Classics Lot's of favourites here and ones that will bring back many happy memories, books you may have read yourself as a child and also ones which you might have read to your own children or even grandchildren. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is probably my best seller in this section, but I have to be honest and say that my favourite is Winnie-the-Pooh. In fact I love the story so much that when I was young I named my favourite teddy bear Pooh Bear in his honour. Books in this section Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Anne of Green Gables Ballet Shoes Black Beauty Narnia The Secret Garden Winnie-the-Pooh ​ Gothic, Fantasy and Sci-fi This section includes one of my favourite books, one which I've read or listen to many times. I have very eclectic tastes when it comes to reading so where is one side of these are shown by my love for the works of Jane Austen, the other darker side reveals itself in the fact that my favourite book in this section is Dracula. I also love the Narnia books which I read both myself when young and which I also remember reading to my daughter and I've also read the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy though I've never watched the films of these. I've not yet read Jekyll & Hyde or the Time Machine but these books are on my to read list. Books in this section Dracula J The Hobbit Tales of Mystery and Imagination (Edgar Allan Poe) ​ American Greats I'The title says it all really, but here you will find iconic books including: The Great Gatsby Non-fiction I'm planning to add more pieces here soon, but to start with I have a range made using paper from a pre-loved copy of Culpeper's Complete Herbal making pieces perfect for gardeners, cooks and any one interested in herbs and their uses. I also make a smaller range of jewellery and gifts using vintage sheet music. Whilst the majority of these pieces are not made using any particular piece of music, my Christmas designs are made using either old Carol music or paper from a vintage edition of The Messiah - and as its Christmas the Messiah and Carol designs includes a touch of glitter. I'm happy to take custom orders for designs made from sheet music but these will either incur additional cost if I need to buy the music required or as an alternative copies can be scanned and sent to me to print off and use. Other books and special orders. If none of the books listed above are to your taste or match your favourite literary genre then I do have a number of other books in stock ready to be used. I also offer a custom order option. With my bridal rose tiaras there is an additional cost of approximately £4 depending on the book requested, or for smaller pieces and for my custom order pendants I recommend that you either scan or photograph a couple of pages from the book you would like me to use and also let me know if there are any particular words or phrases you would like featured. If this is the case I will send you photos of a mock-up for you to approve before I complete the finished piece. For this reason custom orders take an additional 2 to 4 weeks to make depending on the item ordered and the time of year. Vintage sheet music Other book titles available Enid Blyton: The Folk of the Faraway Tree, Third Year at Malory Towers Daniel Defoe: Diary of a Plague Year Dorothy L Sayers: Nine Tailors Thomas Hughes: Tom Brown's School Days The Bible
