I have always liked the evil eye designs in jewelry. This one is a little different as it is in a bookmark. The tree of life is also unusual in a bookmark as I usually see it in jewelry and suncatchers. The tree portion of this design includes beautiful colored beads, and the tree has depth in the multiple branches of the tree.
I wove this design with five different weave patterns, which add texture and contrast.
I oxidized the copper to an exquisite patina, adding depth and contrast of color in the metal. I then tumbled the bookmark with steel shot; this strengthens the piece and adds a high gloss to the copper.
One of my favorite features of the bookmark is the swirls that grace the end.
