It all started because of an old, beat-up 1930s dictionary. Shop owner, Whitney, couldn’t stand to see it thrown away, so she held onto it until the idea came to her. She began making jewelry with the beautiful illustrations & words and Noteworthy of Vermont was born. Her designs take witty sayings from pop culture and turn them into subtle jewelry that makes you chuckle once you get a closer look. Whitney upcycles her damaged book finds into necklaces, bracelets, earrings, cufflinks, and tie clips. She doesn’t use copies – only the original book pages that she finds in the trash, thrift stores, or free piles. Rest assured that no books in decent shape are harmed in the making of this jewelry. You will be wearing a one-of-a-kind piece of history. Check out a few of my favorites.
Whitney sent a pair of earrings and a necklace for my review. Let’s start with the earrings. Alone these earring might not mean much, but put them together and let it sink in. In. Out. In one ear. Out the other. So quirky & cute! These earrings are lightweight and well-made. The size is perfect – not too big or small – and great for some every day fun. Love.
This necklace. LOVE it! I’m a child of the 90s, and Jock Jams was a must have in my CD player. What I love most about it is that from a distance it looks like a cute, simple necklace. But get closer and you will see the charm. You might even get someone to drop a few lyrics. Whitney can make her necklaces any length you like. Personally, I love the longer length because I can wear it with so many different tops. And…bonus! Whitney’s packaging is just as fun as her jewelry. I won’t spoil the fun for you, but I smiled the entire time I unwrapped this one.
