Description

Small Book Accessory - Colourful Teal Book Cuff Links - Book Jewellery - Ex Libris Jewellery

This delicate statement piece captures a love of literature while also remaining stylish and sophisticated! Crafted from rescued manuscript proof copies of books that would otherwise be thrown away and re-used leather (where possible*) you don’t need to give up quality when buying something that has been upcycled.

This item is handmade with care and attention to detail. All effort goes into ensuring the product you receive is of the highest craftsmanship, however there may be some slight differences between the piece you receive and the piece pictured.

The specifics:
• Book measures: 21mm/ 0.83in long, 18mm/ 0.71in wide, 7mm/ 0.27in thick
• Recycled leather is used where possible
• 100% recycled book inner (manuscript proof copies that would otherwise be thrown out are used for book inners)
• Packaged in biodegradable sturdy brown kraft paper box with original logo stamp on outer and library card on inner
• All metal used is nickel and lead free and non allergenic
•Due to the differing typesetting of publishers some books are totally blank, and others have a hint of text on the edges of pages. In both cases books can be written in, if you choose.

My cufflinks are nothing short of MAGNIFICENT! Wow! They look really nice and I can authentically mix and match them with another pair for a matching suit! What I love most is that they look like little books of the Holy Bible. They arrived super early and packaged very well! I plan to have text stenciled on the front of them for a more personal touch.

They are exactly as described. Beautiful leather bound miniature books. I gave this as a gift to a friend who is becoming a librarian and she loved them. I highly recommend them for any book nerd.

Return the item in original condition, and I will refund the full price on receiving it back. I cannot accept responsibility for repaying postage and handling charges.

Shipping policies

Most of the time the items listed are already made, sitting in my studio, awaiting your purchase. This means the turn around time for me to post them to you is very short. I will often post the day of the sale, and if that is not possible for some reason, the day after.

I do ship internationally; however, please remember I am shipping from NZ. I cannot promise your package will arrive by a certain date. Sometimes packages are held up in Customs for seemingly no reason, and transit times vary wildly. For example, I have had packages reach Australia, the US or the UK anywhere from 10 days to 4 weeks after sending.

Please make sure your Etsy address and PayPal address are the same, as confusion with address will lead to delays with your order.

Please note tracking is not included with your order- NZ Post does not include tracking either domestic nor international tracking as part of their standard shipping cost. If you'd like to upgrade your shipping to include tracking, please let me know, however it can be quite expensive.

If your package does not turn up within the expected time frame, please contact me and I will do my best to rectify the situation! However, please be aware that I don't consider a parcel 'lost' in the post until it has been a full 6 weeks from the date of shipping, and I will not replace an item sooner than this.

Additional policies

How to Care for your Paper Jewellery:
Treat your paper book jewellery as you would treat a real book. They are tougher than they look, but i'd still advise keeping them away from water and fire! They are stronger than they look, but still fragile so treat them as such. I would suggest spraying perfume before putting jewellery on to stop it reacting with the theather or damaging the paper.

Please keep in mind that all items in this shop are completely handmade, and therefore some small imperfections may be present. Hopefully, you will, as I do, see any small imperfection as part of what makes a personally hand-made item unique. After all, we are, none of us, perfect!
