This whimsical, unusual & alternative bookmark will keep the pause on your current read, until next time... when you pick it up once again.
Made using the bowl from am old, vintage spoon. I am such a magpie when it comes to collecting vintage cutlery and adore hunting for treasures at antique shops & flea markets. I love being able to take something old & unloved and repurpose it into something completely different, giving it a brand new shiny destiny.
Bookmarks measure approx 7cm x 4.5cm (this may vary slightly depending on the different cutlery I have in stock) and are handmade from start to finish. I start by cutting the bowl from a vintage spoon (using the remainder of the handle to create rings, key rings or different bookmarks so nothing is wasted) and carefully sand down the edges to that they are all nice and smooth. Then using a traditional hand stamping method, I take metal letter & design stamps to create the markings & text.
The stamping is then filled with a black, non toxic, waterproof enamel ink to ensure long lasting wear. (However, if you prefer a more subtle look, this of course can be left plain instead. Please add a note at the checkout if you prefer your letters left unfilled).
Lastly, I drill a hole so the faux suede cord (of your colour choice) can be threaded through creating a little tail for your book mark.
Ready for gift giving, your new bookmark will arrive in a branded linen drawstring pouch and will be both thoughtfully & carefully packaged.
If you have an idea for a design, or would like something specific - please do message me and we can create something unique for you together.
