I love making jewelry and when I came across Boye 4-Piece Beaded Stitch Markers
at Michaels, I thought how easy it would be to make myself one. I am using beading wire and crimp bead to put the beads together instead of using artistic wire and making loops as I find sometimes my yarn can catch on the wire loops.
Supplies to make your own stitch markers
- Beading wire (I used 0.012″ as it is thin enough to go through my little pearls)
- Chain nose plier
- 8mm Crystal beads
- 3mm ivory fresh water pearls
- 1 crimp bead
 Thread the pearls unto the beading wire. Test it on your knitting needles for size. Cut beading wire.
[3 & 4] Join both ends of wire together and thread your accent beads.
 Put your crimp bead through both wire.
 Push the beads together to ensure they are tight and use the chain nose pliers to flatten the crimp bead. Cut the tail off and you’re done!
