Miriam’s Bookmarkers are hand-wrought pewter and generously carved on both sides to be reversible. All bookmarkers measure approximately 6 inches in length from the top of the curve to the end of the handle. The string of artfully designed beads, ranging from 1.5 to 2.5 inches, is designed to drape gracefully over the spine of any size book (hardcover or paperback). While the same beads and colors may be used in more than one item, unless specifically noted, Miriam arranges the beads in a unique combination for each bookmark. Pewter contains lead and is not recommended for use by children. All products are packaged in a gift box, with a polishing cloth for the pewter, and a description of the gemstones used.
