Here is a truly handmade silver bookmark with a genuine and untreated natural Chiastolite cross. This is a great gift for somebody that has everything! This style is uncommon but is the finest I know. It snugly marks the place in a book and then helps to locate the book once it is back on the shelf. Also since it hooks over the binding it will not drop like other styles can.

I selected this all natural and untreated gem, a type of Andalusite called Chiastolite with a stunning trapiche carbon inclusion of a cross. It is a 17.4 x 17.2 x 2mm and weighs 7.80 carat.
The stone is held securely by a full bezel.

This unique book marker is over 4 inches long.

I started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 92.5% alloy of silver. The remaining 7.5% is only copper, no base metal was used for the alloy, less chance for any allergic reaction. The hammering began soon afterwords. This piece is completely hand made, hand crafted, and hand fabricated. It is not a casting, has no plating, no glue and no factory made parts. This style of workmanship is all but lost in today's high tech world due to the high skill level required and the lengthy amount of time it consumes. This old school method that I studied in Thailand is known to be the finest technique in jewelry production and adds greatly to the value and the durability of the jewelry. We stamped the back 925 as it is Sterling Silver and also hallmarked it LEE, my makers stamp and my personal guarantee of quality.

I am happy to make you a custom piece of jewelry. Feel free to select any stones from my stores or send me yours to have me create your own LEE. Select your own style by emailing me an item number of a piece you see, a picture or I can even work from a picture of a sketch you send me. I do not draw or use CAD, I am more of a mechanic than an artist, really. My email for custom orders and information is gemtownusa at gmail dot com. The queue is usually 30-60 days and I accept 50% as a down payment. Contact me for a fast quote. I can create a listing right here on etsy for the down payment on your personal item then another listing when it is ready for shipping so you can still enjoy the comfort of being on etsy while having a custom piece of jewelry truly handmade.

No stock photos!! The pictures are of the exact piece of jewelry being sold here and I have attempted to give you a complete view with multiple shots. They are taken with high magnification and show details you may not be able to see even with your 10x loupe, they will look better in hand.

I would like to thank you for looking at my online stores. You may simply buy the item immediately and I will ship it right out. Please take a look at the entire store when you have time.

Customer service is the main thing I am selling here. It is of the utmost importance to me that you enjoy your shopping experience with us. Please let me know whenever I can help you.
