I absolutely love it!! Thanks so much for switching out the best teacher charm with a frog charm and reading glasses charm. Blue is my favorite color and I had been waiting to get this since I ordered it. I've already got it holding my page in the book I'm currently reading. I'd like to say that it was fast shipping too!! Definitely will recommend to others. Thanks again!!

About

A book thong is a luxurious little book accessory. Like wearing a piece of cherished jewelry, an elegant bookmark makes a reader feel a bit pampered.

OK, so you might ask, "What exactly is a book thong!?" . . . Well, the bead cord sits inside the crease of the book, thus the name "thong!" The bookmark will keep your place without damaging the pages or spine. The beaded ends extend outside the top and bottom of the book.

I have always loved books, and during my childhood summers, our mom encouraged us to read for half an hour after lunch. We curled up on our shady screened porch with a book. It is still a treat to start a new novel.

My classy, handmade book thongs, with high quality beads and charms, are an elegant luxury to pair with your books. I like the feel of it in my hand when I am reading. The next time you need a small personalized gift--for a graduate, hostess, teacher, babysitter, grandma, mother-in-law, sister, friend, daugher, niece, or book club pal--tuck one into a book for a unique and personalized gift.

I first made a beaded bookmark for my mom, using colors to represent the birthstones of her eight grandchildren. I starting making more for friends, and buying more beads, and making more bookmarks. Well, you can see where this is going. . . .

My favorite creations often involve great ideas from my customers. Bookmarks inspired by young adult novels and vampire fiction are the latest requests. And one newly expectant mom wanted a bookmark to let her mom know she was going to be a grandma! You can pick charms and colors to make each book thong personal and unique.

My husband and I grow herbs and lots of veggies in the yard of our old colonial farmhouse--and we have egg-laying chickens, too--thus, the name "farm" in my shop title! But I still like a bit of elegance, so many of my creations have silver and pearl accents.

I have science degrees and have worked at wonderful places including the Bronx Zoo. I have been a science editor for children's nonfiction science books for over fifteen years, which I continue to do as a freelancer. But I can now call myself a full-time artist because my husband and I quit our day jobs in 2012! We just opened an Etsy shop together, selling our handmade hardwood-framed magnetic bulletin boards. Stop by and say hi! http://www.EleganceFarmHome.etsy.com

Thanks to all my customers for supporting handmade.
