I personally made these by hand, with no molds. These stitch markers are made from polymer clay, baked for hardness & durability with a glaze applied. They look similar but no two are exactly alike! The elephants are approx. 3/4" tall. This set fits up to a size 10.5 US knitting needle (6.5 mm). They come hooked on a 2 inch kilt pin which can be used as a stitch holder.
