As someone who enjoys everything about books and writing, I am often on the lookout for new and exciting gifts for book lovers, as quite a few of my friends are also authors or bloggers. I thought I would share any design ideas you might find interesting too. When I came across talented designer Kerry and her unusual gift range, I decided it would be the perfect place to start!
Discover C. S. Literary Jewellery.
Handmade Jewelry for Book Lovers
Hello everyone. My name is Kerry Gauthier and I am a jewelry designer and owner of C. S. Literary Jewelry. As a life-long and obsessive reader, I use my favorite books and poetry to create beautiful, handmade jewelry for book lovers. My jewelry ranges in style, from casual, everyday pieces, (perfect for heading to the bookstore or library to pick up your next read), to romantic jewelry for special occasions, including literary weddings, and is inspired by classic books, poems, and plays, including: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, the poems of Edgar Allan Poe, the plays of William Shakespeare, and more.
Each piece of my handmade book jewelry is lovingly made by hand and many of my designs can be personalized to create interesting, one of a kind gifts for book lovers and readers. Since no books are harmed in the making of my jewelry, even the most discerning book lover can wear my jewelry without guilt! In addition to the literary jewelry designs in the C. S. Literary Jewelry Etsy shop, (www.etsy.com/shop/csliteraryjewelry), I also love designing custom jewelry and would be happy to create something special inspired by your favorite book, poem, Bible verse, wedding vows, etc. I particularly enjoy working with writers, authors, and poets and can create beautiful, bookish jewelry featuring your words and writing.
When I am not designing jewelry, I am a book blogger and share all sorts of bookish content on my blog, including book reviews and fun, literary – style outfits that help you show off your unique bibliophile style and celebrate the books and poetry you love. I love it when other book lovers come geek out about books with me and would love to hear from you. You can find me at www.csliteraryjewelry.com or follow C. S. Literary Jewelry on Facebook (www.facebook.com/csliteraryjewelry) and Twitter (@CSLJewelry).
