OCD, beads and stitch markers

This week I tried my hand at making my very own beaded stitch markers. I only planned on making a few but then the OCD kicked in and well, before I knew it...


I made 155 stitch markers. So, how does this happen you ask? I wish I knew. I seem to do this anytime I find a new crafty interest. Add to that my manic nature and I am a stitch marker making machine.

Some closer views of my hard work.






Some close ups, not all that clear but I think you get the picture.










I had so much fun making these. I'm not entirely sure what to do with all of them. I was asked by my favorite LYS owner if I wanted to sell them. I'm not sure what the market is for these. Comments would be so appreciated it. If you have ever sold them I'd love all the details. For now, I will go.

they are so beautiful, I would buy them!
I's say, sell them - just set up a gallery with photos of sets, price including shipping, and you are set.

I say sell them. I am doing the same at my LYS.

Where did you get your beads? I really like the white and colored swirly ones!

It's addicting, isn't it? They are beautiful. Go ahead and sell them (if you can bear to part with them).

Wow you did go marker crazy! You should definently sell them. They're so cute. I'm thinking of trying to sell some beaded markers and bookmarks etc. to help support The Preemie Project. We'll see how it goes.
Love the beads you chose!

Your stitch markers are beautiful! It is addicting--I don't think I could make only one. I love the little balls of yarn and needles charms you used--where did you find them? Beautiful work! I hope you make some money selling them at your LYS.

Oh, aren't they lovely??? I picked up some beads the other day with the express purpose of making markers for the Stitch Marker exchange. Now you've gone and inspired me even more!!!

Your stitch markers are gorgeous! I'm impressed. I've been trying to make some of my own and having the hardest time getting the wire wrapped neatly--it keeps snagging on things. (How DO you hold a piece of wire still enough to be able to coil the end around like that?) Gorgeous!
