On Etsy since 2016

Unique eco-friendly range of book jewellery and gifts.

If you love designer made jewellery that is affordable, unique, quirky and eco-friendly then this is the shop for you!
If you love reading and books then you need to check out this extensive range of jewellery and gifts, made using paper from classic novels.

Gilli's Flowers Bookshop is a unique range of hand folded origami book themed jewellery and gifts. All the paper elements are hand folded using paper from a large range of pre-loved copies of classic novels plus a few made from vintage sheet music.
Once folded, all the paper elements are carefully finished with several coats of good quality waterproof varnish to add shine, strength, and water resistance, meaning that all pieces are more durable than you would expect (although not waterproof).

Gilli's Flowers Bookshop has an evergrowing selection of books for you to choose from and whatever your taste in books there will be something for you. All the books used are pre-loved and tatty so coming to the end of their lives as books to be read so this gives them a new life and means you can celebrate your love of reading or share a book that is close to your heart.

The wrapping used is plastic free and sent out in cardboard boxes or recycled padded envelopes.

I am proud to have won a Theo Paphitis award for my jewellery and have also been crowned the "Queen of" Origami Jewellery. I have also been featured in Making Jewellery issue 128.

I also have another jewellery shop on Etsy selling genuine cultured pearl jewellery in both traditional and contemporary designs which you may like to take a look at. This shop can be found at www.gloverandgreenwood.com

Care instructions

All my jewellery is made using paper and although I do finish each piece with several coats of waterproof varnish my jewellery is not fully waterproof though it is water resitant. For this reason please remove items such as rings and bracelets before washing the hands and do not wear my jewellery when washing or swimming. I take no responsibilty for jewellery damaged by water. However providing you follow this guidance and keep your jewellery in a dry place or box it will last well.

The tracking number supplied by etsy doesn't work.

This is supplied automatically by etsy. I do not post items tracked unless this is requested.

When will I receive my order?

Please note the timings given are the time it takes me to make and post orders. They are not an indication of when you can expect to receive your order as I have no control over delivery times.
