I think they are nice
I prefer reusing things rather than throwing them away, anyway.
Stitch markers don't really have to be fantastically beautiful, do they? I mean, they serve a purpose but the only one who sees them is you. The hand made ones are easier to see on your work than the little clear rings I bought. I Think I need to make my own too, but at this point, I haven't any old beaded necklaces I can take apart, and buying beads for them seems pointless. lol.
