My handmade beaded Lock and Key Book Thong Bookmark is inspired by The Secret Garden and features bronze charms hidden among the greens with flowers and a butterfly peeking through. Unique and inexpensive, my book thong style bookmarks make great keepsake gifts for any occasion! They are also nice for book clubs, and make perfect and meaningful Graduation and teacher gifts. This one would be perfect for anyone who likes secret gardens and keys.

I made this book thong with brown faux suede leather lace knotted at each end, so it stays secure in your book. The faux suede won’t slip or damage your pages. 10” between knots, which should fit any book up to standard hardcover size.

This bookmark, like all of my beaded work, is unique and one of a kind. I won’t make another exactly like it! I ship them First Class with Insurance.

- Brown faux suede leather lace knotted at each end

For this unique bookmark, I was inspired by The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

I love my books, and so I would not want to use just a torn scrap of paper to mark my place. As much time as I spend reading, I want to use something of beauty. This is why I started creating what I like to think of as jewelry for my books.
