Today I was looking around for a bookmark and was about to resign myself to just grabbing a scrap of paper when I recalled that I had purchased some clamps to make Ribbon Bookmarks back when I was actively doing projects. Using a 22mm gunmetal clamp on a length of 7/8" ribbon (sized for standard soft cover books), I attached a dragonfly pendant on one end and a loner lampwork blue bead to the other, squeezed the clamp shut and had a new bookmark!
If you're curious about the book, it's "How to Quinoa: Life Lessons From My Imaginary Well-Dressed Daughter" by Tiffany Beveridge. It's a humorous book stemmed from a hilarious Pinterest board that you should definitely follow.
