Geek Spy: Letterpress Necklaces

I've always been a word nerd and not only for words on screen but for the actual printing process and book binding and formation of letters via calligraphy. Unfortunately, with the digitalisation of the world, there's less and less people who's heard of letterpress printing and more inclined to discuss wordpress blogging. Hence my delight at discovering these letterpress pendants from GwenDelicious on Etsy. Aren't they gorgeous? They are originally used on hand-cranked printing presses, each piece of type used in these necklaces are worn out by normal printing use. Available for about HK$300 a pop.

  1. Thank you so much for featuring our necklaces...they are not that heavy as the letterpress pieces are small. I wear two of them at once.
