Immensely pleased with purchase!! Merchant sent earrings uber quickly as promised, and materials were high quality and finely crafted. Earrings were creative pieces worthy of giving my zombie-loving friend. I would definitely purchase from this gentleman a second time!
Earrings handmade from recycled books, comics, maps, and more.
I started by trying out a variety of ideas with hardback books salvaged from the recycle bin of my local public library. I made picture frames from the books and then tried making earrings from the book spines. The book-spine earrings didn't work out so well, but I had a comic collection that was gathering dust and not gaining value so I decided to try making earrings from word bubbles. I love taking things out of context and mix and matching to make new stories and my customers do too.
Around the web
Welcome to Ex Libris Novum. I upcycle books, magazine, and comics into new creations: frames, earrings, greeting cards, and whatever else comes to mind in the future. The majority of my materials are rescued from the recycle bin of my local library (with their permission). Occasionally, I'll purchase used books or comics from garage sales, or used bookstores. Feel free to suggest new crafts for me to make from old books.
