This poor bedraggled copy of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables has just found its way into my book stock. Les Mis jewellery, here I come!


The Acorn Fairy

My whole world has revolved around books and stories since I was a tiny little baby. Whether I'm reading them or writing them, stories are my most favourite thing.

Acorn is the main character in a series of short interactive adventure stories, that I've written for ages 3-5. 'Acorn Fairy Saves Autumn' 'Acorn Fairy and the Lost Bear' and 'Acorn Fairy and Buttons the Bunny'

She is by far, the favourite of all my characters. So when the opportunity arose for me to start an Etsy shop, and spend my time making lots of pretty things. It seemed only right that she should take the journey with me.

Now she works hard as my inspiration, helping me to turn old, broken books, into new creations. While pulling inspiration out of the stories we collect from all over the world.

I do my very best to only ever use damaged books. That way my fellow book lovers can wear my jewellery, happy in the knowledge, that no healthy books have been harmed.

Most of my books are sourced from second hand book shops and charity shops. And some are passed to me by friends and colleagues who wish their old broken texts to be upcycled into something lovely. Giving these old, ripped pages, a second chance to be a part of someone else's story.
