13 Etsy Handmade Items That Make Every Bookworm Drool

I don’t know about you, but I could spend ridiculous amount of money on Etsy! This beautiful site calls itself “the world’s most vibrant handmade marketplace”.
This is the place where one can buy and sell handmade or vintage items, art and supplies.

These are some of the most beautiful and creative homemade book related items that might easily be on a wish list of any book lover.

1. Put a little charm in your life! 
This charm necklace  (by CharmedbyKaren) features an exquisitely detailed silver pewter book charm. A perfect gift for a librarian, reading, literature or literacy teacher. This is a lovely way to say thank you to all of the fine bibliophiles we know and love. The charm is 3-D and shows patterns on all sides.


2. Made from solid steel, these bookends are heavy enough to hold up your reading collection. Sold in a set of two pieces, finished in hammered black. They are made by Knob Creek Metal Arts and come in many different forms, shapes, sizes and themes.


3. Black laser cut “protagonist” and “antagonist” necklaces.
