Special Edition Stitch Marker Clips
Every so often I stumble upon some interesting beads or charms that I think would make a sweet stitch marker clip. These are often one-of-a-kind or in very limited numbers and probably never to be re-stocked again. I will always try to find more but it's not always possible. Please Note: The Bronze-Finish Moons will be available indefinitely.
Yew are a sacred and magical tree, steeped in mythology and legends in all of the cultures Yew Trees are found in Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. This is an ancient slow growing tree that results in a tight grained gorgeous hard wood. The oldest living Yew trees known to exist are estimated to be 4000 years old and the yew tree itself has been found to have existed since the Jurassic era. It's no wonder that to the Celts, the Yew tree was a tree of death and re-birth as it seemed to possess an immortality that transcended life and death.Yew is also poisonous (further connecting it to death) and weapons were often tipped with yew poison for battle. It is said that carrying yew wood on you protects you from evil while also increasing your connection and communication to the ancestors and dreamworld.
Each Yew pendant was ethically harvested, and handmade on Vancouver Island. Please note, due to its toxic nature, Yew products should not be permitted where children may put them in their mouth.
