ALikelyStory – Literary Jewelry & Bookmarks for the Bookish Sort

See on Scoop.itWearable Art

“How nice to combine my fixation with shiny pretty things with my love of all things bookish!” says the owner of the Etsy shop ALikelyStory in her profile. We at LitCouture are likewise fans of literary flair. The shop features book-inspired pendants, charm bracelets, and earrings, as well as shepherd’s hook style bookmarks.

Bracelets make up the bulk of the site, featuring letter charms spelling out phrases such as “Bibliophile”, “Got books?”, and “Wordsmith” accompanied by a variety of book and writing themed dangles. The letter beads are made from old-fashioned replica typewriter keys, often overlaid on text backdrops; the other charms are a combination of pewter book stacks, typewriters, pencils, coffee cups, and other essential tools of the literati, and images from books and documents displayed in base metal charms with glass cabochons. Many bracelets are personalized for those in bookish professions, such as librarians, archivists, and editors, and prices range from $25-50.
