Foldformed Book Pins
Jewelry for Bibliophiles
Book pins are individually hand-wrought in brass and copper. Every one is unique. The pages are copper, colored with heat. The covers are brass, for strength, burnished to frame and set off the color of the pages. 'Text' of the books is hand-scribed into the metal (but no, it doesn't actually say anything). You can specify Red, Red-orange, Orange, Brown, or Black when ordering, but please note that the colors are highly variable. Click on the photo at right to see examples of the colors. You can also ask for "Something Interesting" to get a pin of a pattern that doesn't fit into our normal color categories. The pins are approximately 1 inch high, 1¼ to 1½ inches wide (2.5 by 3-4 cm).
