I finally did it!!!
I was planning this for a while, collecting beads and trying different combinations. But little things, like holidays, Mumps and childbirth kept interfering.
That is why I am so pleased to finally introduce a new line of products from Chicken Stitches. Do I sound like Head of Marketing here? Well, that is too in my job description. Somewhere between diaper changing and laundry folding.
I am very, very happy with this new line of Pendants – Stitch Marker Holders. I have been dreaming them up for a long time.
Looking for a dropped marker on the floor or between sofa cushions is a real pain. Especially if we are working with tiny, lace or sock markers. I have tried a lot of holders from safety pins to cute sock blocker shapes. My main complaint was that I had to keep track of one more thing. That got tedious. I will also admit that I love pretty things. Safety pins are not pretty.
That is why I decided to make something, that will hang around my neck, not get lost easily and be beautiful as well as functional. I made gorgeous pendants (I hope you like them too), that have a lobster clasp on the bottom and you can clip your stitch markers onto it. When you are not using the markers they can dangle pettily, creating a beaded tassel. They would look stunning with either fancy duds or casual clothes.
I have experimented and made a first one a couple of months ago. Then with the help of few people, who took the time to give me wonderful advise (thank you Beverooni and Tamar) I came up with the final version that I am pleased to present to you:
Because the focal beads are handmade all pendants will be limited addition only – no more than 12, most of them only 3 or 5 sets. The set includes6 Free knitting stitch markers and a free converter ring for crochet markers is available upon request. Stitch markers can be upgraded to crochet for $2.00 extra. This pendants are now available in my Etsy Shop.
P.S. If you like the pendants, but for some reason do not want to pay through the Internet you can email me at HenyaK@MSN.Com and arrange to pay with a Money Order.
