Pearls of Wisdom
Add some "pearls" of printed wisdom to your ensemble with this upcycled book necklace by Laura Bruland Shields. She rescues discarded books and gives them a fresh start as wearable art, laser cutting small stacks of pages and covers to create flat paper and book cloth "pearls"--roundels that offer charming glimpses into their bibliographical past lives. The laser cutting technique produces consistency of form, but the eclectic source material ensures that each piece is one-of-a-kind. Handmade in Oakland, CA.
