Carved Antler Lace Bobbin Divider Pin

This is a larger bobbin divider pin nearly 4 inches long (approx 100 mm).  Dave made this one from dark East Indian Rosewood and deer antler. The little carved wise owl will watch over your lace work. It is initialed by Dave, the maker.

Where do we get our deer antler?

We use shed antlers which naturally fall off the animal each year after the breeding season. They grow back during spring and summer and are fully developed again by the fall breeding season. After that, they are shed and the process repeated again for the next years growth.
