I love to read. Due to numerous obligations, I do not have much time for this passion of mine. It’s true, I could read books in electronic format (and sometimes I do), but I love the smell of old books and the fantastic feeling of flipping through pages. Therefore, a book (regardless of the thickness, size and weight) is always an integral part of the contents of my bag. Although my bag is quite heavy most of time, this way I can read anytime, anywhere - at the station while I wait for city bus, in the bus even when I do not grab a seat, in the shop while I'm standing too long in line at the cash register, on the street while waiting for a friend who always arrive “on time” with two hours delay... To other people I probably look like a lunatic while I'm standing with book in hand completely lost in time and space, but these are the only free moments that I have and it would be a shame to waste them in vain, so I use them for reading. Besides, artists are always a bit eccentric, and I'm showing my eccentricity by reading books in unusual places and unusual time. :)
However, this is a reason why I constantly lose bookmarks. So I created a bookmark that will suit my needs and that will be hard to lose. With Makin's Clay® I made a heart, hand painted it on both sides by a gold acrylic paint and smeared it on both sides with Rapid Dry by Stylish epoxy resin. Through a hole in heart I pull a gold chain on which I put a bead. To mark the page where I stopped reading I just have to move the chain and while I read on unusual place I can wrap chain around my wrist and be sure that I’ll not lose my bookmark. Also, in case I've left the house without jewelry (which does not happen often) and I urgently need a necklace all I have to do is to slide bead down to the heart and to hang a chain around neck. Nice, isn't it!?
