Approximate length 12.5cm/ 5" long and 0.70cm/0.30" wide.
Our hand made Greek Olive wood lace bobbins are unique as each olive tree is unique. Our bobbins are all hand carved not wood turned.
All pieces are engraved with the artist's signature "E".
We can send this gift wrapped if required at no extra cost. All postage and packaging is included in the price.
(No trees were harmed in the making of our gifts and sculptures, Olive trees are "Trimmed" on a regular basis for easier harvesting and to avoid wind damage.)
The stone of self mastery and self control
Black onyx enhances steadfastness and determination. It can sooth fears and worries and control overwhelming emotions. Used for centuries to aid meditation and focus the mind. In tune with earth's energies balancing Yin and Yang. Onyx helps you to become master of your own fate. Black crystals are used to create a shield against evil and danger, they absorb anger and malevolence. It is also said to protect against venomous snakes and insect bites but we do not recommend you test this theory. Wear it when stepping into anticipated danger.
