Mindful Matters Dragonfly Bookmark Review & Giveaway
Like most writers, when I'm not working on my own books, I enjoy reading creative works of other authors. I am still old fashioned. I haven't gotten a Kindle. I like the feel of a real book in my hands. I treasure my collection of both fiction novels and non fiction research books. So when I need to mark my page, there is no creasing back the pages. And paper bookmarks get beat up too easily. I am as picky about my bookmarks as I am about the books I read, so I want only the best. Recently I discovered a wonderful little company called Mindful Matters that creates exotic and unique, handmade book marks that are just what I was looking for.
Dragonfly Hook Bookmark. The stem of the bookmark is decorated in silver tone flowers. Dangling from the hook are a variety of colorful beads. At the end of the beads is a dragonfly, which has always been one of my favorite symbols. Unlike most metal bookmarks, this one is thick and sturdy. It will not bend easily. The hooked corner will stay firmly in place so you won't lose your page. But it is so pretty, you might find yourself losing your place in your novel as you admire the amazing and intricate details on the lovely polymer clay bead work. In addition to the dragonfly bookmark, they also offers butterflies, honeybees, hummingbirds and more.
Mindful Matters. She also offers an amazing collection of stunning handmade jewelry including earrings, pendants, pins and more that are inspired by nature and spirit. Her pieces are unique and exotic, but available for prices that the average person can afford. Most are under $30, even though they are handcrafted from polymer clay and precious metals. If you are looking for a unique gift, or a little something to spice up your spring wardrobe, look no further than Mindful Matters.
