Calling all bibliophiles and jewelry lovers!

What if you could wear your favorite book? Tell us about a literary work that is special to you, and London artist Jeremy May could transform it into a beautiful piece of original jewelry, just for you. Send a description of your favorite book to communications@fullercraft.org

Be sure to explain why it is your top pick – what personal meaning it holds, how or why it has influenced you, etc. May and Fuller Craft Museum staff will chose from the pool of submissions, and one lucky winner will receive a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry made from the actual book. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity! Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, Fuller Craft Museum is proud to announce this exciting contest.

May’s work is currently on display in our exhibit, “Metamorphosis: The Art of Altered Books” on view until 11/6/16. He specializes in transforming old books into intricate pieces of jewelry.

Submission guidelines:

  • Deadline for submission in November 6, 2016
  • Send a description of your favorite book to communications@fullercraft.org
  • Type “Jeremy May Contest” in the subject line of your email submission
  • Book needs to be over 300 pages
  • Must be available as a hard cover
  • Cannot be a religious text
  • Limit of 1 entry per person
