I go through phases where I love making Spndle Whorls, they aren't that easy as they need to be balanced as well as interesting to look at, which is probably why I don't make them all the time :)
This is the Bigger Whorl in my Grungy Blue and Blossom range and is 36mm in Diameter and this one is in shades of Light Turquoise and decorated with little Pale Pink flowers with Yellow centres, the glass has been heated over and over to get a good balance and this results in an edgy and grungy look to the whorl, which I personally love.
This whorl can be purchased with or without the wooden shaft.
A lot of collectors have one shaft and swap their whorls out depending on their mood or if you fancy another type of wood, head on over to https://www.etsy.com/shop/HersheyFiberArts she has a wonderful range of spindle sticks.
This will make a lovely little gift for yourself or the Spinner in your life :)
Number of beads: 1
Bead size: The Whorl measures 36mm in diameter and about 13mm high.

This is made of Oak with the characteristic "belly" of a medieval spindle, it is a top whorl shaft and is notched.
PLEASE NOTE: Photos are taken using natural light and a flash, I color match the photos to my screen, but all computers display colors differently.
I used Effetre Glass and all my beads and whorls go directly from the flame into my digital kiln.
I do combine shipping, so you only pay shipping on the first item and the others travel for free.
