Jet Team Wedding Challenge 2008

I made this bookmark for The 2008 Wedding Challenge sponsored by Etsy teams: Jewelry on Etsy Team, EtsyFAST and Etsy Greetings.
I think any bride might have a little time to sit by a pool or on the beach during her honeymoon. What a glittery way to mark the page in her favorite book. After the honneymoon, I invision this bookmark either in her Bible or her Wedding Album.

The focal part of this bookmark is a clear baroque 1 1/2 ” x 1” pendant. Pictures simply do not due this bookmark justice. The bling factor is extraordinary!! If you are interested in more pictures and information on this item, visit my Etsy Shop.

Beads used in my design include cultured pearls and Swarovski crystals. Charms that reflect a wedding day include a silver closs, an angel, silver hearts and a "Hand Made With Love" charm. All wrie wrapping is done with 20g sterling silver wire. Findings including head pins, spacers and bead covers are stainless or silver plate.
