Design Porn: Scribbelicious Literary Jewellery

 

I'm on hols in Wales this week, so today's Design Porn comes to you courtesy of that beautiful country (dons implausibly Newport accent, says "cwtch" a lot, generally embarrases Welsh heritage).

Scribbelicious (north Wales, far from Newport) take damaged books, some a century old, and puts them to new purpose as beautiful jewellery. But if you, like me, are a bit "arrgh" about doing anything to books - even damaged ones - then you can breathe easily as Scribbelicious also carries an enormous supply of original designs. Shakespeare works predictably well, and as well as Scribbelicious's own website, the RSC and Globe shops both carry exclusive, lovely ranges.


These lovely wedding cufflinks are made to an original design, and like all Scribbelicious's jewellery, you can choose your own quote, weddingy or otherwise. They're £20.


Scribbelicious' bangles are lovely - the Guess How Much I Love You rabbits would make a sweet gift for any smalls you might now. This Lord of the Rings design is £18.


The pendants are fantastic; beautiful designs that make the most  of the lovely quotes they use housed in silver plated ovals. Hello Tyrion Lannister, you speak the truth.


Pick from Shakespeare, modern classics, 19th century and inspirational quotes, depending on what you require.

This Mary Poppins pendant is absolutely stunningly done,  if slightly foreboding. But then that's part of the deal with Mary. There are a lot of quotes from children's books here, from Anne of Green Gables to a number from Alice in Wonderland. I've just been reading The Children of Green Knowe for the first time in ages and have only just recovered from how beautiful and apt the writing is. Often, children's writers say it best.


And of course sometimes you just need a Ronseal quote, like this lovely silhouetted Love Books pendant.

This RIDICULOUSLY lovely Sherlock Holmes pendant, with accompanying Bottle of Mystery, comes from a fragment of a damaged book. It comes in a themed box and is, like all the pendants,  £18. NB: any jewellery that involves pieces of a damaged books will feature different pages,  but definitely those characters. Check with Scribbelicious if you want to make sure.


And where would we be without Pride and Prejudice? I LOVE YOU LIZZIE, YOU ARE BRILLIANT. And yes, there are Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre editions if your favourite couple doesn't involve Miss Eliza and Fitzwilliam "I put my upper lip in curlers" Darcy.


Oh blimey, I really did get caught up with pendants. These lovely earrings come from a damaged Victorian edition of Romeo and Juliet and come in a lovely themed gift box. I love a themed gift box, it makes the whole thing feel like An Experience. These are £14.

I'll call it a day there or I'll never stop, but have a lovely rootle around and don't forget Scribbelicious do bespoke commissions. NICE.

Thanks to @frizbot for the fabulous tip-off.
