Announcement   I am BACK! After our long move across country, I will be having a grand re-opening this coming weekend in celebration. I am taking custom orders and there are many items now listed in preparation.

Like many people, I love to read. Reading has been my favorite pastime since I was a child and I have always wanted to do something that involved my love of books. I have taken my love of books, in all different forms, and have made them into wearable works of art, preserving the page for generations. Each book I use I have saved from being recycled, if I do use a new book I make sure it is purchased for the full retail price so the author gets full royalties.

These pieces are all unique, not one will be the same as another, because the book page always varies slightly. Now that I have figure out how to combine these two loves, the future is an open book for me...

"The medium of using pages of books incorporated into jewelry is an amazing idea for a fellow bibliophile. The ring I bought was a gift for an extremely "discerning" friend and it received high praise from her, using phrases like, "Wherever did you find such a marvel?" And " I can now say in all honesty, that I always have 'a book at hand' " High praise indeed! I can't wait to order mine. :-)" -Holly

You can have shop from the items listed below, or you can request a custom piece from your favorite book! Each piece is handmade, made with real book pages, so you can always carry around a piece of a book with you! Enjoy~

About

This is our love!

“I cannot live without books.”-Thomas Jefferson

Each of these Epik Creations is made from recycled books, and other elements of books. Each piece is handmade, combining new and old found objects to create wearable works of art.

Like many people, I love to read. Reading has been my favorite pastime since I was a child and I have always wanted to do something that involved my love of books. I am also an artist, so I decided one day that to being able to combine my love of books and art, was my main goal. To combine these two passions was difficult, I first started taking it literally, by photographing books, and that led to deciding that I wanted to be able to carry around these objects with me always.

I started out as most jewelers, as making stuff or friends, then selling here and there, then to what you see now. I have taken my love of books, in all different forms, and have made them into wearable works of art, preserving the page for generations. These pieces are all unique, not one will be the same as another, because the book page always varies slightly. Now that I have figure out how to combine these two loves, the future is an open book for me.

    I am a small town girl, who loves to read and photograph everything. Combing my love of art and books was natural for me, but finding a way to do it was harder. Taking these forgotten books and making them into wearable works of art is what I do.
