Julie Myers´ bookmark is simple and imaginative, with layered chains and ring/chain tatting. One shuttle and ball thread throughout.

Segnalibro Edda Schneider star[offsite link]

Split ring bookmark star[offsite link]
There is no illustration but Susan Taliaferro´s split ring bookmark hardly needs one as it is quite simple.

Spring Flowers Bookmark star[offsite link]
Here is a new, lovely pattern by Julie Patterson.

Tatted Bookmark star[offsite link]

Two Shuttle Bookmark star[offsite link]
This pattern, by Dianna Stevens, is another work out in two shuttle tatting but for all that it is not difficult. It would be a good first piece for a beginner embarking on this technique.
