I wrapped a gorgeous ruby red glass faceted stone into this design. Surrounding the ruby are natural copper beads. The tree portion of this design has many beautiful colored beads that light can shine through.
I wove this design with four 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.
