Hand Carved Hooks and Shawl Pins
The hooks are Genuine Deadman Crick Apple and each has a comfy thumb rest.
The top hook is a hybrid size. It's 6.75mm, partway between a K and an L. (SOLD)
The middle hook is a G (4.5mm) (SOLD)
The bottom hook is a K (6.5mm) (SOLD)
Prices: $25 each
The shawl pins (shown in a beautiful shawl made for my sweetie, Karol, by my lifelong friend Mickey) are all made of Crick Wood
The top stick is made from a charred stump of cedar. A forest fire raged through the ranch area way back in the early 1900's and I still see charred stumps around. Split the outer surface and the insides of these stumps are often amazingly well preserved. I left the dark outside on this one, but you can flip it over and the surface will b similar to the stick you see two places down. (SOLD)
The second stick is made from a old Hazelnut Bush stick. You can see I left the little bug trails. Beautiful wood! (SOLD)
The third is another stick made from the charred cedar stump only with the clear wood showing and a little of the charred surface on the top edge.
The bottom stick is made of a really HARD and prickly bramble bush that grows on the ranch and tantalizes me to come and donate blood as I try to sneak dead branches from it's thorny grip. Ah but the wood is worth the effort, as is the extra effort it takes to transmogrify this otherwise threatening but otherwise plain looking wood into beautiful objects. (SOLD)
The shawl pins are for sale $15 each except for the bottom one, which is $20.
