I've been waiting for some wirework supplies to arrive. They turned up in dribs and drabs, and when the crucial parts turned up today, I couldn't resist getting the pliers out immediately and whipping up a few owl-themed stitch markers:
Sterling silver bead caps, end pins, and soldered jump rings. The beads are strawberry quartz.
I'm so chuffed with these little fellows, I can't wait to get a project on the needles that calls for lots of markers!
