East of Eden // Hand-painted Watercolor Bookmark
“I remember my childhood names for grasses and secret flowers. I remember where a toad may live and what time the birds awaken in the summer—and what trees and seasons smelled like—how people looked and walks and smelled even.” - John Steinbeck, East of Eden.
In East of Eden, Steinbeck describes the Salinas Valley as though it were another character in the story. The images are rich and vibrant, and have always stood out particularly clearly in my mind. This bookplate is a tribute to his words, and a timeless story of two brothers, betrayal, redemption, and resurrection.

Each piece of watercolor jewelry is drawn and painted by hand, and no two will ever be alike.
This bracelet setting is made of a solid nickel-free alloy, but may cause a reaction when worn near the skin on some individuals. It is always a good idea to consult a doctor before purchasing if you are prone to metal allergies.
