While turquoise is mainly associated with the American Southwest, the oldest known turquoise mining deposit is believed to be the Maghara Wadi mines located in the Sinai Peninsula. Turquoise was a predominant jewelry stone in the Egyptian, Persian, Chinese, Tibetan, Incan, Mesoamerican and Southwestern Native American cultures, making it a truly global adornment. Known as the "Skystone" by Native Americans, the distinctive robin's egg blue color of turquoise continues to allure us throughout the ages.
And now you can bring some of that allure to your knitting!
These are my new movable design, the Reversa-Clippy! There is one adjustable Clippy-style with a lovely tumbled turquoise stone, and four plain stitch markers. One side of the marker has a lobster clasp that will hang comfortably on most yarns with the exception of super-bulky variety. On the flip side is a round closed stitch marker that will fit up to a size 8US/5mm knitting needle. It's almost like two stitch markers in one!
Made from hand-coiled copper wire, the glass seed bead is glued over the joints to ensure smooth moving. Because the rings are hand-coiled and cut, your markers may be slightly wibbly-wobbly and not completely round. All stitch markers are shipped in a zipper bag in a padded envelope.
Fits needles up to size US8/5mm.
