About

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.

Hi!
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.
Enjoy!

Payment
I accept Pay Pal, credit and debit cards, and money orders. Purchases ship when payment has cleared.
Shipping
I ship Monday through Saturday. Most domestic orders arrive in 3-5 business days and most international orders arrive in 7-14 business days. These time frames are estimates offered by the U.S. post office. International orders are subject to customs inspections, which can cause days or weeks to be added to estimated delivery times. Please contact me if you have any questions.

U.S. orders are sent with tracking/delivery confirmation. If you would like to purchase insurance or international order tracking, please contact me right away for information about how to pay for these additional services.

Multiple jewelry purchases are shipped in one jewelry box to conserve space and materials. If you are purchasing multiple items for gifts and would like items sent in separate jewelry boxes, please note this in the message to seller box when placing your order.
Refunds and Exchanges
It is my sincere hope that customers will be delighted when they open their package! If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact me to resolve the issue.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are purchasing jewelry, please note that it has been treated with a thin layer of mod podge but is not waterproof and the colors may fade if you leave them in the sun (like on the dashboard of your car). You should remove your jewelry before bathing, walking in the rain, running through sprinklers, volunteering for a dunking booth, etc.

Custom orders are available, just contact me with the details!
