Tumbled Glass Stitch Markers in a Tin – Autumn
- six stitch markers in a storage tin
- made from tumble etched glass
- jump rings or lever back clasps
- lightweight and strong
A set of six markers made with lampworked glass beads which have been tumbled to give a finish like sea glass. These stitch markers are light and hard wearing. They're perfect for keeping track of pattern repeats and important points in both knitting and crochet projects, making them a great addition to any project bag. Each set is supplied in a screw top aluminium tin, keeping your markers safe when not in use.
The lampwork beads are approximately 13mm in dimeter and 5mm thick. Each bead is handmade so there will be small differences.
We make our own lampwork beads and they're kiln annealed for strength before being cleaned. After that the beads spend eight hours in a rock tumbler with sand and grit. This leaves the glass with a beautiful matt finish. An added bonus is that beads treated this way feel lovely to touch - and as each bead can spin in its fitting that's a real bonus.
We offer two different fittings.
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.
Choose between six jump rings, six lever back catches or a mix of both.
Suitable for needles up to 6mm.
Tin measures 40mm diameter and 18mm deep.
