Billy‘s work has been featured several times here on Boing Boing. If his work is your kind of thing, his Instagram

To fill that niche, Coast to Coast Medicinals, a mail-order medical marijuana shop in Vancouver, Canada, has created a cannabis-filled advent calendar.

By laminating hundreds of the paper pages of vintage books together and then finishing them with a high gloss coating, artist Jeremy May is able to create these marvelous pieces of literary jewelry. The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewellery re-inserted in the excavated space. Each piece is impossible to replicate, and is unique to the wearer. The beauty of the jewels extends within the piece: text and images pass
