Two different wire weaves are woven into this bookmark, drawing the eye to the different textures. The many swirls in this bookmark are one of my favorite features to include in a design.
I oxidized the copper to an exquisite patina, adding depth and contrast in color in the metal. The bookmark is then tumbled with steel shot; this strengthens the piece and adds a high gloss to the copper.
I shaped a hook (clasp) in the metal that is located directly under the stone, and as an added feature to the clasp, I fashioned a swirl at the bottom of it. This hook will add several options for choosing how you use the bookmark, with pages placed in the clasp or simply put in the book.
Making swirls is one of my favorite accents to add to the bookmarks, three grace the bookmark at the bottom.
