Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I love the stitch markers that I had made a few years ago, but they were made with a 24 guage copper wire.  I am finding, with frequent use, that it is starting to bend and break.  So I made these recently, some for myself, and some to add to a swap package.

The top rings are uncut metal rings/shapes from a package of random metal shapes I had bought for jewelry making.  They seem pretty sturdy.  They have chainmaille mobius balls dangling from some, and encaged facetted glass beads in on others - for when you need to define different areas for knit/crocheted designs.  Unfortunately I ran out of that size of glass beads, so those ones will be given away and I will have to make more for myself in the future.

That's pretty neat! Chainmail meets yarn-craft, I love it Cheesy
