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 :)
PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for the Whorl ONLY, you can purchase the Wooden Spindle Sticks in a separate listing here http://www.oooohbeads.com/spindle-sticks
This is one of my bigger whorls in Soft Violet, she is 35mm in Diameter and has been made with marbled Violet Grey and Ivory Glass, which I have etched to give a soft satiny look to the Whorl.
This will make a lovely little gift for yourself or the Spinner in your life :)
Number of beads: 1
Bead size: The Whorl measures 35mm in diameter and about 11mm high.
Weight: This whorl weighs 17 gms.
Hole size: 5mm
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.
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.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me :)
