~Summer Sorbet~
Hand-Turned & Carved Hardwood
Crochet Hook, Size I (5.5 mm)
Materials: Osage Orange, Acrylic

Frothy flitting orange and purple, like a summer sorbet -- cool and smooth on a hot day. Polka dots, sundresses, leaves whispering in the gentle breeze, aestival days delight!

I began this hook with marvelously bright Osage Orange wood -- I love its rich, deep color, and the way it polishes up to a glass-like smoothness! I decided that it would look even lovelier with a little decoration, and hand-carved polka dots of different sizes all the way around the hook. I then painted them in various shades of purple, gold, and silver metallic acrylic.

This ornamentation does have a little texture to it, so I made sure to put it far enough to the top of the hook that it won't rub your hand whether you use the "knife" or "pencil" hold. This piece is engraved with my signature/artist's mark. Size I (5.5 mm), seven and seven-eighths inches long. Heirloom quality.


All of my items are tested for durability and strength. They're not simply ornamental -- they are fully functional tools and ornaments created with the finest materials and techniques in order for you to have a tool that is both beautiful and works comfortably and efficiently at the same time... just as it should.

I like to use purely natural wood and stone whenever possible -- the wonderful colors and grains are just staggering! Occasionally I will use dyed wood or man-made materials to accent a piece; these will be noted above. Otherwise, consider each unique item as the handiwork of Mother Nature.

I've been a fiber artist for over twenty-five years, and now use my experience to design one-of-a-kind items: from the tools of the trade (crochet hooks, knitting needles, spinning tools, etc.) to items of personal adornment such as hairpins, jewelry, and much more!

There is a wonderful joy to working with a finely crafted wooden crochet hook. They're smooth, warm, and fast as lightning! They also have the potential to become cherished heirlooms. Every Daystar design is gently enveloped in a fabric pouch, and comes with a gift card. My work is 100% guaranteed. Please see my web site for a Care & Use Guide as well as other information.
