About Wirelings

Sales 4,478
On Etsy since 2011


I started my shop about in 2011 with little experience and a lot of hope. After a month of no sales I gave up and pursued other options for selling my art. After a little luck with a tiny cat on social media I re-opened in 2012 and focused on bookmarks. I started Wirelings with five designs and now have almost 50.

When the shop became too popular for me to handle on my own with my illness my husband jumped in. I handle customer service and social media while he takes care of working out new designs and filling orders.

We both love books and read every day. Our friends and family love to use our bookmarks in their filofax organizers and even tie ribbons around them for Christmas ornaments.

Our five star rating and 600+ positive reviews speak volumes: we love our bookmarks and so will you.

    Hello, I have an illness that makes it difficult to work a normal job. So, to help supplement the household income I opened this shop. With my dear husband's help we have made a successful business. Thanks for looking!

    Hi there! My name is Chris and I make the Wirelings for this shop. I also come up with new designs. I'm Michelle's husband and we have 3 naughty Chihuahuas: Gizmo, Trinket and Mocha. I hope you enjoy our work.

Care instructions

The wire we use is plated with a tarnish resistant coating. However, frequent use and washing/chemicals can remove this coating.

We use copper wire in various gauges. Copper wire is commonly used for jewelry and can be bent (this is important as we create each bookmark by hand). We temper our designs but they should not be used roughly. If you find your bookmark doesn't hold the page well turn it around and use from the other side.
