"Lady with Flowers" Cameo Needle Minder
We made this graceful "Lady with Flowers" cameo needle minder from a gorgeous vintage inspired resin cameo. The needle minder measures about 1 1/2" in length by 1 1/4" wide. We inlayed a rare earth magnet on the back. Dave inlayed another rare earth magnet into a beautiful piece of Walnut that he turned on the lathe. Together, these beauties will "mind" your needle conveniently on your project! You could even take off the "minder" and use this as a frig magnet.
Rare-earth magnets are strong, permanent magnets made from alloys of rare earth elements. Rare-earth magnets are substantially stronger than ferrite or alnico magnets, so you'll need to keep this away from your credit cards or pacemaker.
This needle minder is currently for sale in our Etsy.com shop for $10.00. If you'd like to view this item, please click the link below.
