What self respecting book lover would be without a beautiful bookmark? Some books deserve better than dog eared pages or a grocery store receipt to note the spot you left off. Here are a few gorgeous handmade bookmarks from my friends at Etsy.
For thirty-six dollars, you can have this sterling silver with Swarovski crystal bookmark which is handmade by The Little Shop of Sparkles. Dangling from the shepherd's hook are crystal balls, bicones, butterflies and cubes. The Little Shop of Sparkles will customize your bookmark in any color to suit your tastes. Based in London, England, The Little Shop of Sparkles ships throughout the United Kingdom, as well as internationally.

"Daisy Face" is a five inch long bookmark with floral embossing and a pendant frame attached. A sunny photograph of a daisy will peer out over the edges of your book. Designed by Jude of Wearable Art by Jude, this bookmark costs only sixteen dollars.
Bee-ing a "Melissa," the bumble bee bookmark from Nature Made Scents made sense to me! How adorable is this wire twist bookmark fashioned into a busy bee that hovers at the last page you read? Melissa is Greek for honeybee, but in plain English, this bookmark is a sweet addition to my book nook. Pam, the designer, hand twists each book'marker™. See more of her handmade creations at
