When I was a kid I used to dog ear the pages of the books I was reading. Now that I am older and look the damage I did I wish I had had a book mark that would have lasted a lifetime, and this one will. I love the idea that this slim piece of metal could grace the pages of every book someone read from childhood to college.
Each book mark is handmade of stainless steel with a leather strap and will not rust or tarnish over time.
The metal is cut with tin snips, polished, and then heated for color. The pattern is then achieved by hand cutting a mask, and bleaching the steel with an etching cream. Care is taken to make sure there are no burs or sharp edges.
The dimensions of the book mark are approximately 6 inches tall and 2 inches wide. Due to the process of making each one separately there will be slight variations in the color, size, and pattern.
When you order a book mark please indicate which pattern you would like. If you would like more than three at the discounted rate please let me know and I will be happy to reserved make a listing for you. I am also happy to create a pattern for you if there is something special you would like to add to your piece.
Every effort is made to ship your item within 3 business days via USPS. If you would like my work shipped to you somewhere outside the USA please convo me for rates. I am happy to look them up and see if it would be a good fit to ship to you.
