Beautifully constructed, perfectly balanced one-of-a-kind top whorl drop spindle:

• Whorl – 2 1/2” Diameter of Jicarillo
• Shaft – 9” Bocote (below the whorl)
• Hook – 18 gauge Nickel Silver Hand Bent Wire
• Weight – 1.5 oz. or 42.52 grams
• Notch – Can be added at the buyer's request. Please specify location.

Each spindle that Ken creates is unique, one of a kind and this drop spindle is truly exceptional. For this spindle, Ken chose Jicarillo for the whorl and Bocote for the shaft. Jicarillo is a very unique wood with unusual colorations. This piece of Jicarillo looks gray in certain lights with a light golden brown. The whorl almost looks like it is a combination of two different woods but it is a single piece of Jicarillo! The unusual grain pattern reminds one of an inkblot. Take a look at the photos and see what picture or figure comes to mind. The Bocote shaft matches the Jicarillo perfectly--a truly beautiful and unique combination.

Not only is this a gorgeous spindle with a silky smooth finish, but it spins and spins like a dream! This beautifully crafted spindle, complete with an 18 gauge, hand bent Nickel Silver hook, is made to last a life time, and become a frequently used family heirloom, passed down from one spinner to another.
