Hand-Turned & Carved Hardwood
Needle Case/Toothpick Holder
Materials: Bethlehem Olivewood, 24k Gold Plated Findings

I hand-turned this needle case from Bethlehem Olivewood, certified from the Holy Land. Olivewood is one of my most favorite woods in the world! It has an incredible scent when cut, (like olive oil), and turns smooth as butter! I adore the beautiful crisp milk-chocolate stripes on a creamy background -- exquisite! The wood polishes to a high shine and holds detail with incredible precision! Gorgeous!

Burl is rare to find in this species, and this beautiful piece of wood has a remarkable "feather" figuring pattern -- just beautiful!

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. The length is three and one-eighth inches long, (measured without keyring). Smooth as glass! 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'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 owning and using finely crafted wooden items: they're smooth, warm, and have the potential to become cherished heirlooms. My work is 100% guaranteed. Please see my web site (http://www.KatherineKowalski.com) for a Care & Use Guide as well as other information.

Each item is a unique work of art handcrafted by Katherine Kowalski, a professional woodturner and Master Fiber Artist. All designs and graphics, etc. are copyright © Katherine Kowalski. All rights reserved.
