My New Stitch Markers!
I was inspired by Artlady's post and decided to make my own stitch markers. This is what I have come up with so far:

my first set:


The start of my second set:


I'm getting better at the wraps, so I might want to redo the first set once I'm all done. I bought 4 different bead types two like the first set (greeny-blue and fuscia) and two like the second set, jade and amethyst. I plan on giving one of the sets to the friend who taught me to knit because I know she likes pretty stitch markers but she doesn't want to pay for them

Oh, you have no idea! I sat there with your thread and went step by step through the pictures until I finished my first one.

I make mine wrapping the tips of the pinwire arround a cheep old metal straight needle, then I can make the loops different sizes. I tend to use size 15, 10.5/11 and 8, they work well, I also have some that have smaller loops on the ends, so they can even be used for the smaller needles like sock needles.
