If you are a knitter or crocheter of projects that require multiple pattern repeats, then you know the value of a project keeper or stitch marker for keeping track of your pattern starts and stops -- or to make sure you are on the right side of your project.
Do you knit in the round? Marking the row so you know it's time to do the next row is critical for a well shaped hat or top.
These markers fit on knitting needles up to a size US11 (8mm). If you would like a lobster claw clasp to use the smaller markers as a right side/wrong side marker, just ask!
The artist makes these markers from beads she finds in antique stores, seconds from the jewelry making process, and through regional sources of unique materials such as bone or antler.
The dichroic glass beads come from a southeast Ohio jewelry artist and are seconds. The beads have a small chip or an off-center hole that wouldn't work for her needs, but they make beautiful and one-of-a-kind project tools.
Accent beads of glass, crystal, ceramic, stone, bone, or metal.
The findings are a mixture of sterling silver, silver plate, antiqued brass, gunmetal brass, and stainless steel. The artist also sometimes uses a coated silver or steel cord if she wants a piece that dangles more than it would on a wire.
