This bookmark, including the copper bar is handmade. And I can confirm this is a great way to let some steam off!!
This Dorset Button Posy and Copper Bookmark would make the ideal gift to say “Thank you Teacher!”. It would also be an original small gift for any occasion for any bookworm – birthday, Mother’s Day, pleasure of gifting,… Other designs are available more suitable for him (thinking of Father’s Day in particular). All bookmarks can be made to order, to suit colour and design preferences. Simply contact me for more detail.
The Dorset Button is just over 30mm diameter. The copper “bone” of the bookmark is approximately 13cm long, and made from 2mm copper wire hammered. There are some hammer marks from the process, which have been left for added effect. The full length of the bookmark including tassel is approximately 15cm.
I have used Anchor Pearl Cotton Nº8 and a wooden ring to make the Dorset button and tassel.
