Here at Life With Two Boys one lucky reader is going to win a 2 piece bracelet set from Trashy Crafter. Read my review to learn more about this awesome jewelry then enter below!


If you're an avid Life With Two Boys reader you probably already know how much I love to read so you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by Kim from Trashy Crafter about reviewing their recycled book bead jewelry. I'd honestly never heard of such a thing but as soon as I checked out their etsy shop I was hooked.


What exactly is book bead jewelry? Well, Kim and her mom, Helen, collect damaged and outdated books that would otherwise be thrown away and turn them into super unique jewelry. They take the actual pages from the books, cut them into strips, and roll them into colorful beads that are then used for necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Pretty cool, right?!

I was recently sent a book bead bracelet set made out of a copy of Twilight to review and I couldn't be happier with it. While I have so many books that I enjoy, Twilight is one of my all time favorites so it's no surprise that I would love this bracelet set. But I think what I love the most is the uniqueness of the bracelets in general and the mission behind Trashy Crafter.


Trashy Crafter offers a wide variety of jewelry made out of novels, children's books, comic books, sheet music, and even maps so whether you're a book junky, traveler, music buff, or comic book nerd, Trashy Crafter is sure to have something for you. Use code: lifewithtwoboys for 15% off your purchase for the next month.
