Spring Bluebells Bookmark

£14.00

A rustic copper book mark with a pretty droplet of a single translucent blue agate bead, with twining natural leather and flex wire.  Inspired by the promise of spring time where British bluebell wild flowers carpet the forest floor with beautiful colours of cobalt blue and lilac.  The words 'Bluebells are the lullaby of spring' have been hand-stamped onto the copper sheet.  The metal has been lightly hammered, scuffed and distressed to give texture and depth to this woodland piece.

Description

Beads: Blue agate semi-precious gem stone.

Metal: Solid copper with a patina finish polished to reveal the warm coppery tones beneath. The copper has been sealed with a gloss varnish.

Length: 13cm / 5.1 inches.

Agate is a translucent microcrystalline quartz and is related to balancing yin yang in the body, protection, strength, courage, calmness and healing. Agate also helps the eyes, uterus and stomach, pancreas and cleanses the lymph system.

Variation: Each piece is crafted individually using the same colour palette and will vary slightly in appearance. I use the traditional method of hand-stamping onto copper sheet. Each letter is hand-stamped with a wonky rustic appearance, to be imperfect and whimsical. There will be differences in each creation with the text alignment, spacing and position. It is also important to note that hand stamping onto copper sheet causes the rear side to buckle slightly from the metal being ‘chased’ on the front side. The indentation on the front is darkened to ‘pop’ the lettering and numbers.
