Glass cabochons ready to be placed into their settings. They're on one of my favourite atlases - a Philips Atlas of the World, printed in the early 50s. The colours are so appealing to me.

About

Papery Creations

I was inspired to start my shop by a good friend, who had a second hand book business and a lot of unwanted or unsaleable books. I always keep in mind that I am recycling a precious object - a book, and that people love them.

My background and education had always been in art and design, and as a kid I loved to make and to draw, yet somehow, by the time I was 38 I was fully ensconced in an academic job that really had very little to do with hands-on making, although I did work with other designers. It wasn't what I wanted to do with my life.

I made the leap in the Spring of 2009, and set up Bookity a couple of months later, on a shoestring budget, in the spare basement room of our house in Reading, UK. My partner Matt made me a work bench out of an old door, and away I went!

Bookity was small at first, and I experimented with all sorts of things. Now Bookity has grown into a fully fledged micro business, supporting me completely. I'm grateful for this, and for being able to learn so much about the art and business of handmade craft, and about my customers.

I love to create! I created this shop and this role for myself and I have to say it's the best job I've ever had. I use unwanted and out of date books to create unique ornaments and book related jewellery with a literary theme.

A Bookity item is unique and personal, made with care and attention to detail. It is beautifully packaged using recycled paper, tags and cards. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Shipping
Orders currently have around a 7 day production time, additional to shipping times. Your shipping date can be found on your receipt. Please let me know if you have a deadline, and I will do my very best to accommodate it.

I use Royal Mail to ship all items unless expedited. US customers, please be aware that Royal Mail standard airmail does not include a tracking number. You would need to upgrade shipping to Tracked.

Shipping times with standard mail:
UK: 1-2 days
US, Canada: 9-11 days
Australia, South America: 9-15 days
Europe: 3-7 days

Shipping times with Tracked & Next Day are:
UK: 1 day
EU: 3-5 days
USA/Canada: 5-7 days
AUS/NZ & Rest of the World: 7-9 days

When shipping to anywhere else not stated above, inc non EU countries and Asia I use tracked mail as standard for security.

Otherwise, to keep postage costs low for my customers, all orders under $100 are sent using standard mail. If you'd like to purchase tracked shipping or faster shipping you can do this at checkout.

It is my policy to refund customers whose parcels have gone missing in the post. However, it may take up to 4-6 weeks to determine that the parcel is actually lost, as sometimes they can be held up by customs. So please bear with me in these cases.

Local buyers can also arrange to pick up an item personally!
Refunds and Exchanges
Custom items such as map cufflinks, pendants and earrings are not eligible for a refund unless they are faulty.

If you change your mind about any non-custom item within 14 days you are free to return it to me for a full refund. You are liable for shipping costs.

I refund postage and item refunds when I receive the item.

If you have any problems with any product, please get in touch with me as I will be very happy to help resolve any problems. I make as sure as possible that my items are well made and durable as they can be. However, recycled materials can be unpredictable.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are created in a smoke and pet-free home.

I use recycled packaging materials where possible, although I do use new padded envelopes and boxes as well. I package smaller items in tissue and recycled book page envelopes. Larger items such as bags are packaged in tissue and bubble wrap.
