The good side of making your own findings for your products is that they can be completely customizable to fit all needs. The bad side, is that it take sometime to do.
These have to be formed out of wire, then soldered so they don't open or snag pretty yarn, then they have to be cleaned...really well.
The rest is more fun to do. All I need is a good movie or music, a little patience and something nice to drink ( if it's day I will go for coffee, if it's night it will be tea and if it's hot...beer will do! ).
I do enjoy this process of making those rings and hook thingy, it is relaxing and it helps in keeping me in line with what I want my stitch markers to be.
