Fifty Times Round The Sun Stitch Markers

The Flower Power Fund raises money for Marie Curie.

So why fifty times round the sun? Sarah who set the whole thing up is 50 next year.

£5.00 from each tin of markers sold will be donated to The Flower Power Fund - Sarah has setting up a GoFundMe for this.

I'd love to sell 50 tins of these - and to keep it manageable I'll be listing them in batches of 10 - that means your markers will be ready to post immediately.

The six designs are designs are

golden sun with red, yellow and black points

unnamed planet with orange and purple

planet earth, covered in a swirl of clouds

pale blue sky with fine silver dots - these are made by melting silver  wire onto the bead

moon on a midnight blue sky

deep dark galaxy with a swirl of cream and silver

The glass beads are made by me in our Harrogate studio and kiln annealed for strength. Each glass bead is individually made by hand so each will be unique.

Approximate bead sizes (widest and tallest)

sun, unnamed planet and planet earth are 12mm in diameter

pale blue sky, moon and deep dark galaxy are 8mm x 16mm

Stitch markers come in a little metal tin to keep them safe while they're not being used. This also helps ensure they travel safely through the post.

We offer two different fittings - choose your favourite or have some of each..

Stainless steel jump rings (10mm outer diameter, 8.8mm inner diameter) are ideal for slipping over a knitting pin.

Lever back catches (10.6mm by 8.8mm inner space) can be slipped over knitting pins or opened and fastened round individual stitches.

Suitable for needles up to 6mm.

Tin measures 50mm diameter and 18mm deep and has The Glass Of Joy logo on it.
