Incredible jewelry made from recycled books (yes, bling!)

Oh my goodness. These really took my breath away! They are jewelry that look like semi-precious stones. Right? Wrong -- look closely, and they are actually cross-sections of old books! I kept scrolling down and loving one after the other.

Here's just a few of my favourites. Check out more of Jeremy Mays's incredible work he calls "literary jewels" at Little Fly.
