Hand-Turned & Carved Hardwood
Needle Case/Toothpick Holder
Materials: Ivorywood, Dyed Hardwood, Turquoise, 24k Gold Plated Findings

I hand-turned this needle case from a combination of beautiful creamy Ivorywood, and dyed hardwood in a combination of bluesy blues. I then carved a recesses between the two into which I inlaid crushed Turquoise. I love the wonderful curves that the dyed hardwood layers reveal as they are cut! A fantastic combination!

Findings plated in 24k Gold, this lovely holder is lined with nickel-plated brass, and will easily accommodate sewing, embroidery, or yarn needles, toothpicks, or even small beads. Personally, I use one of mine as a small pill box. Comes with an attachable keyring, or can be used as a necklace or on a chatelaine. This (like all of my other Art Tools) is one of a kind piece. Total length is three and one-eighth inches long. Smooth as glass! Heirloom quality.

Inside dimensions: the diameter of the opening is a little over 8mm, (about 1/4"), and the internal length is 2 3/4".
