Pear Whorl Takli Support Spindle with Pyrography and Mammoth Ivory

This pear whorl Takli support spindle measures about 12 inches long and weights about 1.0 ounces (28g). The cherry whorl has been adorned by Dave with a pyrographed leaf motif. The end of the walnut shaft has been shaped to better accommodate a half-hitch. The tip was crafted from redheart. An accent of ancient mammoth ivory was also used to adorn the shaft. More photos of this spindle can be viewed at the Etsy listing.
