Fancy stitch markers -- Now on Etsy

Besides knitting, I've been doing bead jewelry for some time, and while I'm revamping my website, I've started putting some of my stuff up on Etsy. I dearly love the beautiful stitch markers I've been seeing -- jewelry for the knitting needles -- and I've listed some heirloom-quality sterling silver markers on Etsy. I fashioned these to be dual markers: one small solid sterling ring and one large one, so they can be used with various size needles and give double the service, double the value.

Here's a "silver oddments" set, made with various single Bali beads that had been accumulating in my collection:

A set of six gemstone and sterling markers: amethyst, white jade, and smoky topaz:

And another set of six gemstone, sterling, and Bali silver markers, in rose quartz, green jade, and moonstone:

I just got a shipment in of some adorable glass beads, so coming soon are rubber ducky, bunny hop, and fruit salad stitch markers. Stay tuned!

Lovely stitch markers. Are the rings on the ends different sizes? That would be really handy for different size needles. Good work!

Yep, the rings are two different sizes, so you can use them for small or larger needles, up to about 10mm.
