Auction #65: Custom Beaded Bookmark from Joan Stradling

Image provided by donorDescription: The winner of the auction will send me their top three choices for the charm of the bookmark (I can get almost anything, but ask for three just in case). They’ll also send me their top three color preferences (again, I can get almost any color). From there, I will create a custom beaded bookmark. I’ll send pictures of the finished product and will redo it if winner isn’t satisfied. When winner is happy with results, I’ll ship the bookmark. This process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks.

For examples of bookmarks made in the past, see my Etsy shop at:

Estimated Value: $8 times 2 winners
Auction Begins: Thursday 3/31 @ 9:00AM EDT
Auction Ends: Tuesday 4/5 @ 9:00AM EDT

Bio: I’m navigating the crazy road to publication. When I’m not writing, I have many things to keep me busy. One of them is making beaded bookmarks.
