This rustic looking bookmark was made using an ancient eggshell mosaic technique.
I started with a solid metal cross and then broken egg shells were added and stained with greens, blacks and oranges to look like an old rusted piece. A triple thick clear finish was added for strength, durability and shine.
It was finished with black leather lace and 2 genuine Soap Stone beads. Very unique and each one is original so you will receive this exact bookmark.

Eggshell mosaics were popular in Renaissance (and slightly earlier) Italy. The artist/biographer Giorgio Vasari mentions eggshell mosaic (musaico di gusci d' uovo) in his Lives of the Artists (Architecture) in 1551. He specifically associates the technique with Gaddo Gaddi, a Florentine painter and mosaicist who lived from 1239-1312 or thereabouts.

Each bookmark is packaged in a box for gift giving or for you!
