Gemstone beads have long been believed to have metaphysical/healing qualities and are often used during meditation. Some are thought to bring about wisdom, strength, energy, luck, and healing to name a few. For me knitting is kind of meditational (is that a word?), so I thought…hmmm…it might be interesting to make up some stitch markers with gemstones and combine my love of knitting and crochet with my newly found curiosity with gemstones, it seemed like a natural combination! I love having a set of gemstone markers on my projects and concentrating on what the little stones might have the ability to do. Whether you are a skeptic or a believer, one thing is for sure, they are wonderful little pieces of nature to have on your projects!!
Howlite: thought to be a super-calming stone that relieves stress. Howlite also promotes serenity of mind and helps to remove distracting thoughts thus improving focus. These high quality stones are white with varying intensity of gray veining, with an appearance of fine marble.
You will receive 6 markers made with 12mm puffed flat square stones that range in color as stated above, and one marker made with a 12mm sun shaped silver charm.
These stitch markers are super easy to open and close and work with any weight yarn. They also fit onto knitting needles up to size US 10.5 as shown in the third photo. They make a very special gift for a knitter, crocheter or for yourself. You could also wear them as earrings :)
Stitch markers come in a sheer drawstring bag (last photo - beads shown in the bag may not be the same as the ones listed, it is only a representation of the bag, color of bag may vary).
