Beaded Bookmarks

I spent all last weekend making these beaded bookmarks to give as Christmas pressies to some very special crafty friends. I think that most of them have received them now (or at least they should have done!), so I think it's safe to put a photo on here now.

They were really simple (although time-consuming!) to make. I started by threading various colour mixes of seed beads on to lengths of Tiger Tail, fastening each end with a crimp bead. I then added various beads (a mixture of glass, semi-precious, fresh water pearls) and charms, by putting them on head pins, and using split rings to connect them to the ends.
