  • This listing is for an individually, handcrafted, solid sterling silver, needle tidy that doubles as a snag free stitchmarker. They come individually or slightly discounted if you order a set, inside a small aluminium tin, with a silicone coil.

     

    Tell me the size needle you would like me to stamp, and I will adjust the larger jumpring to suit that size, so that the needle tidy will do double duty as a stitchmarker should you wish.

     

    The range shown are on my personal DPN and interchangable KnitPro Symfonie needles, and include patinated and unpatinated finishes (the #5 is unpatinated, all the others have dark patination) The default will be unpatinated as all sterling silver eventually tarnishes, and the recesses will naturally develop their own patina.

     

    I make these using offcuts from my HookerRings, and each length of sterling silver is 4mm wide by between 15mm and 25mm long, hand punched with 2.5mm high numbers. I then drill the holes, and add jump-rings, also made using recycled sterling. The larger ring that slips over your needle is soldered closed, and the whole piece is carefully filed and sanded by hand and then tumbled for an hour or so, before I again double check them to be sure they are totally snag free.

    See full details of how and why I make these on my Scraphappy blog post of 15/02/24

     

    If you are looking to buy as a gift, then don't forget I also have the affirmation markers

     

    Please note that each will be slightly different, as I make them individually, and usually to order within a week.

     

    All my silver is now bought as certified recycled eco-silver, made from 100% scrap / recycled silver which has been fully refined to ensure it is of the same quality as traditional sterling, but of course without the environmental impact of mining it.

    These aren't hallmarked as they are very lightweight
