Solid bronze Orifice Hook with Leaf Handle, 5 1/4" (13.4 cm) long

Ariadne was the mythological figure who spun the scarlet thread that led Theseus out of the Labyrinth after slaying the Minotaur. I like to think that she had a tool as beautiful as this one to use as she went about her labors. (In the spirit of full disclosure, however, the spinning wheel hadn't yet been invented, so she spun her thread on a distaff and spindle. Nevemind. ; )

But..., that doesn't mean YOU can't use this lovely orifice hook with your spinning wheel. If you go to the effort to spin yarn, you must love the tactile quality of the task. This graceful hook can add to that experience. The handle is made from two bronze leaves, gently curved to accommodate your fingers comfortably. The hook is formed from hammered bronze wire smoothed so it will not snag your fibers. There is even a small loop on the end so you can tie on a loop to hang it from your spindle!

Crafted of bronze clay, it was hand formed, then kiln fired . It was then meticulously polished to ensure that it has no rough surfaces, so it will glide like silk through your wool.

Step up your crafting experience, or give the perfect gift to your favorite spinner. I can guarantee he or she will be thrilled!

Please note: In order to keep costs down, I do not rephotograph each hook. There will be slight variations as each handle is molded from a living leaf, but the dimensions and look will remain much the same. If you would like a photo of the hook you will be getting, just let me know and I'll send you a picture for approval. Thank you
