Oh wow they are cool. I love the “Golden Snitch Stitch Markers”. They are definitely earrings but what are stitch markers? Or is it just another name for earrings? I’m a little confused.

Thanks everyone! :D

@Love: The cards at the front are earrings, but the one it the very far back is a set of stitchmarkers. Stitchmarkers are a way for knitters and crocheters to help keep track of the beginning of a row, numbers of stitches, and numbers of rows. :)
