This set of stitch markers was made for MamanTattoo.  There are 9 markers.  One for each of the 8 holidays in the Wiccan Wheel of the Year; Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas & Mabon. The 9th is a pentagram to unite them, and as a reference to the Rule of Three, which states that the energy that a person puts out into the world will come back to them three times.  Therefore there are 3 times 3 markers.  The beads are semi-precious stones.

Here they are as a set. Starting clockwise from the top row left, they are:
~Pumpkin with a carnelian bead for Samhain; carnelian is thought to lend its energy to others.
~Evergreen tree with an aventurine bead for Yule; aventurine is thought to enhance regeneration and bring luck.
~Cauldron and an obsidian bead for Imbolc; obsidian is thought to block negativity and symbolizes resilience.
~Rabbit and a blueberry quartz bead for Ostara; blue quartz calms the mind and inspires hope.
~Broom with an amethyst for Beltane; amethyst brings pleasant dreams and promotes healing.
~Bonfire and yellow agate for Litha; agate is thought to give a person the strength to carry on.
~Sheaf of wheat and a garnet for Lammas; garnet is used for protection on journeys and constancy in friendships.
~Apple and cherry quartz for Mabon; cherry quartz is thought to bring clarity.
~And at the center a pentagram and white quartz bead to complete the set of 9.  Quartz is used to aid in meditation.
