Perhaps the ideal gift for fans of Lord of the Rings? The top of this antique brass bookmark has been enhanced with a glass cabochon with an Eye of Sauron design. The top section has been hand sewn using brown soutache braid, then tiny bronze coloured seed beads have been sewn in to surround the design. The length of the bookmark measure 80mm.
I came up with the name Not Gathering Dust because I wanted to create colourful, vibrant jewellery that people would want to wear and not leave to get dusty! Many of my pieces are bold and make a statement, but I also have smaller pieces that are less ostentatious. I sell my work at various craft fairs and through my Facebook page.
Every piece is different and takes many hours of work. I can make individual pieces to match outfits or for special occasions. As each piece is hand sewn, they are often very light and comfortable to wear.
