Handmade Walnut and Ivory Spinners 1/8 in Diz Set

Dave hand made this 1/8 inch orifice diz and threading hook set out of walnut and ancient mammoth ivory. The diz is a 2 3/8 x 2 inch walnut oval with a center insert of smooth ivory, so no fiber snags on the wood grain or edges. The orifice threading hook is brass with a walnut handle, ivory and ebony accent rings. Dave has also burn etched the Victorian design on the diz by hand. This piece has been initialed and dated by Dave, the maker.
