Beaded bookmarks

About this design:

I was inspired by the ribbons that you find attached to books to hold your place. These bookmarks can be put on the cover of the book and then the longer ribbon moved to mark the page, or the paperclip can be moved to the page. The beads are meant to hang on the binding or the cover.


paperclips, handmade polymer clay beads, glass beads, jade celtic knot, ribbon.

    Cool-i-o! I’m especially fond of the green/purple combo. One of the clay beads looks like Ruby in Zoisite.(The one just above the Celtic knot).
