All of our wood bookmarks are 100% handmade in Washington state using our own 25 step handcrafted woodworking process that produces heirloom quality results without waste. We have great respect and stewardship for the trees we use, taking care to recycle any left over pieces into the next product, adding even more organic value to our small pieces of art. Our complex production steps include precision cutting, laminating, shaping, sanding, polishing, no-stain finishing, color UV ink printing, drilling and tasseling. Then finally each bookmark is inserted into a sealed clear protective sleeve with an artist information card.
The colorful watercolor painting of this rather large and wide open eye is by Colleen Nash Becht ©2017 All Rights Reserved. Everyone has fun gazing into this creature for a stare down. If we had to guess, we'd say it's from some sort of friendly beast that will gladly glare at you and your book until dark. After dark we just don't know what happens.
The accent strip of various solid wood pattens is allowed to show through the painting to better showcase the combined art of watercolor and woodworking. As a finishing touch we add a color coordinated gold color rope tassel.
This is a classy, distinguishing and a little bit scary looking bookmark suited for many occasions where a gift is required. Great gift to a favorite teacher, co-workers, graduations and students or paired with a book, in a greeting card as a thank you or as a birthday present.
