Thank you for viewing my designs! I have many, many pieces of books leftover from making my vintage book wreaths and other paper art. Not being one to toss anything out in a hurry, I saved all my book covers, knowing I’d think of something to create from them at a later date…

… and here they are!

This listing is for is one of my Vintage Book Spine Cuffs. You’ll not see another piece of jewelry just like it anywhere. After salvaging the spine (or part of the front or back cover in some instances) I search through my assortment of fabrics, both new and recycled from clothing, and I choose something that I feel complements the focal piece of the cuff bracelet. I hand stitch the spine to the fabric and assemble the cuff, creating a one of a kind item just for you!

These Vintage Book Spine Cuffs make perfect gifts for book lovers, librarians, bibliophiles, those that have something in common with the title of the book used, and those that want a unique, eco friendly, sustainable piece of wearable art.

Think ahead about gifts for birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, etc. Have one on hand (no pun intended) for an unexpected occasion when you need a gift for the hostess or person of honor at a party.

Thank you for visiting Simple Joys Paperie!
