Mason & Books
A native New Yorker, Jamie Books is an accessories
industry vet whose career spans 15 years designing
luxury accessories. Books began her career in fine
jewelry—studying at the Camberwell College of the
Arts and later pivoted to include handbags and
small leather goods.
However, her relationship with jewelry began as far
back as the designer can remember: jewelry has always
been an outlet for creativity as well as a way for Books
to assert her own independence. Throughout her life
jewelry has been something that she has always turned
to to catapult her into the next chapter.
Naming her brand Mason and Books was a tribute to
her muses and cheerleaders— her children. ”Mason” is
her daughter’s middle name, and her son’s initials are
MB. Books hopes that one day M&B will be something
they can grow together. (However, no pressure.)
In 2021, Books debuted her line, inspired by her
family, color, and the rollercoaster ride of life. The
Mason and Books design philosophy is to dream up
unconventional ways to interpret common concepts.
Incorporating unique color combinations of cut
