~Purple Islands~
Hand-Turned & Carved Hardwood
Crochet Hook, Size I (6 mm)
Materials: "Jadewood" and "Charcoal" Dyed Hardwoods, "Purple Swirl" wood and acrylic combination

I began this hook with a fantastically neat new material which combines natural wood with acrylic. (It is fairly costly, but I think the finished piece is worth it!) As I was turning this lovely piece, little "islands" of wood began to appear among the beautiful purple swirls of the acrylic. It reminds me of tiny islands dotting the seas, currents swirling around them. A VERY cool material indeed!

To accent, I added a band of "Charcoal" Dyed Hardwood, and made the shaft of verdant green "Jadewood" Dyed Hardwood. GORGEOUS combination!

Size I (6 mm), about seven and one-half inches long. Heirloom quality.

Please see my web site and blog for more about my work and inspiration.


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'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.
