How our stitch markers are made:
Each stitch marker we sell starts as a spool of wire. Each jump ring is made by hand. We start by wrapping our chosen wire around a mandrel, creating what looks like a giant spring! Each ring is then cut from the coil individually. It's at this point where we add our charms.
Ta Da! A finished stitch marker!
When using a stitch marker made with jump rings, there is always a small chance that your yarn may snag. For this reason, we recommend using these markers with fingering weight yarn or larger, and recommend avoiding working with silk yarns. However! You always have the option to upgrade your markers to snagless.
Our snagless stitch markers have a colored glass bead affixed over the join in our handmade jump rings. These will never snag and are perfect for lightweight and silk yarns!
