I read Smeddleys post on her zentangle project an started going through all her wonderful projects, until I came upon her stitch marker swap. Then the usual Pinterest binge ensued and I ended up with beautiful and hopefully long lasting stitch markers. I hate the commercial ones and didn't have any. I used metal rings I had lying around.
The shells were collected maybe 20 years ago on a family trip. I used fishing line, held together by one of these handy crushable beads for jewelry and glued it into the shell with. So basically destashing at the same time.

That is a really nice idea.  My friend lives in a seaside town and I know that she would love some of those...I too have a seashell stash I also have a load of small pieces of sea glass.  I wonder if I can drill them whithout them breaking.

Thank you! They are really easy to make, too.
I saw some with seaglass that were wire wrapped. I'm not sure about snagging with that method, though. I think that was in the stich marker swap thread!
I guess you could probably drill a hole with a dremel, but I never tried that.
