Copper Wire Bookmarks with Beads

I have been busy this week but unfortunately I can't show you at present- but keep watching this space later on .
Today I made some bookmarks using 2.03mm copper wire which is thick .
I cut it into 30cm lengths and coiled both the ends in opposite directions using a Wigjig.
I then made the tassel piece from beads- jump rings - eye and head pins.
Here are three of them- I may add some fibres as well --maybe or maybe not.


The finished length of the copper part is 14cm from coil to coil and the bead tassel is 10cm long.
These were for a special order for a friend as she had purchased some from me last year and needed some more.

What a great idea for bookmarks Doreen.
Can't you give us a clue what you've been up to? I'm far too impatient.

Beautiful work Doreen! Love the middle one. Can see why your friend wanted to purchase more of them.
