Shepherd's Hook Bookmarks
Today I am making a whole bunch of bookmarks. Some may go in my shop and some may just wait in my inventory for the Holiday craft shows. I have enough bookmarks and enough holy medals to make 16 different pieces.
I love the way these bookmarks hook over the side of my books letting the beads & medals dangle down. I love the pretty jingle noise they make when the beads and the medals clink together. And the idea of them being a "Shepherd's Hook" is beautiful imagery in just the words themselves.
I really like making these pieces and they have proved very popular in sales. I have had several custom orders for multiple bookmarks with specific Saints. I can't always find all the Holy Medals requested but I do try.
Visit the Bookmarks/Magnets section of my shop to see the other bookmarks I have to offer.
