A friend asked for a custom bookmark, similar to one she bought before.  Here it is:








Did I go overboard with the butterflies?

Thanks, everyone.  My shop is full of them if you want to see more.   ;)

I attended a beading demonstration at my local library last September, and I've been hooked ever since.  We made beaded bookmarks (I really don't like the term "bookthong," btw, so I don't use it, lol) similar to what I make now, but without dangles on the one end--just a line of beads like the other end.  When I started making them to sale, I changed the design/idea to what I posted above.  I've made over 100 of them, I think.  I've lost count!

Book thong? Eeks... I wouldn't use that either....

Great idea!
