DROP SPINDLE: Butterfly Circle 136 - w/Raspberry Color Edging
Raspberry colored edging and clear Baltic birch background adorned with commercial art transfer (Color Butterfly Circle).
John Galen's Drop Spindles:
All of our drop spindles are hand crafted in Tucson, AZ, by John G. Gudenkauf (owner/artist). They are made using a solid maple shaft that is sheathed in a tight-fitting solid brass tube, which provides a beautifully balanced spin and keeps the spindle from warping; even if the spindle is laid on its side for long periods of time.
The whorl (round disc) is made from industrial quality 4-ply Baltic birch with a solid maple support. The whorl is decorated using a variety of methods, including air brush painting, hand painted details, original artwork, and commercial artwork applied/transferred directly to the wood. After the painting/artwork is applied to the whorl, it is sealed with three coats of semi-gloss water-based High Performance Polyurethane Top Coat for an extremely durable and beautiful finish.
BLING - some spindles are embellished using Swarovski Crystal Elements that beautifully catch the light and sparkle as you spin your fine fibers!
Quality hand crafted tools for fiber artists.
