Here are some hand made Drop Spindle from my lathe. Thay are finished to a high gloss with an old french polish. I have Hand bent the Stainles Steel hooks in a swan neack style and centerd the hook to get the truest spin posible, The hooks are a tite fit not glued This is a personal kind of tool and if you prefer to change the hook in style or material you are able to change it, and if you like how it works you are able to set it with a little Krazzy Glue.
Under the whorle I have put a barly twist due to how polished the spindle is it needs a little somthing to grab on to and there is a groove under the whorle to lock your wool throuw.
When it comes to inserting stones and gems In to my spindles to enshure that it is the stones I say, I buy solid stones and crush , and grade my self, There are a lot of reconstited or heat treated and dyed stone, to look like Material out there and the only whay to make shure what I say is in there I do it in House The Cast Resin Whorls I Designed and Made.
