Welcome to House of Ismay, the home of the classic book page brooch.Whether you are searching for a gift for the avid reader in your life, or want to treat yourself to a keepsake of your favourite book, I'm sure you'll find something here!Recycling, upcycling and sustainability are all really important aspects of my work, and have been since I started House of Ismay in 2008. All brooches are made using the original pages of worn out books, damaged maps and unwanted scraps of MDF and wood sourced from local businesses, so by buying my products you are helping to minimise landfill as well as getting something pretty! Using recycled and reclaimed vintage materials helps to create products that have an instant feeling of history and familiarity. Due to the handmade and reclaimed nature of my work, each piece of jewellery is unique, making them even more special.
I have been awarded the Blue Butterfly trust mark for sustainability.Everything is made by me, in my home studio in East London.
I hope you like what you see! - Sarah, founder of House of Ismay.
