Santa Beaded Stitch Marker
I mean, I can't promise it, but I'm pretty sure that if you have a tiny Father Christmas/Santa on your project, then it will be knitted faster. If the guy can use magic to get around the world in one night, (with a little help from time zones), then surely he can send some magic your way to knit those gifts faster? His iconic red suit, bushy white beard and black boots are all in this tiny charm, along with a 24kt gold plated bead for his belt buckle.
Not only are these ideal to use as progress keepers in your yarn-crafts, but because they're removeable, they make perfect stitch markers for crochet to mark the end of your round! I love to use these to mark the end of my round in knitting too as the larger clasp is suitable to use as a stitch marker on smaller needles.
From the top of the earring finding to the base, this charm is 3.5cm, and the charm itself is 2cm.
The beaded progress keeper/charm is handmade by sewing the beads together one-by-one to achieve the desired pattern. The beads are made out of glass. Although these charms are extremely durable, they're still made from glass beads. If your charm is bashed about, there is a chance the beads may break (although this hasn't happened to me before!)
Thee earring wire itself is nickel free and silver plated.
This charm is made in a pet-free and smoke-free environment.
