Carved Tagua Nut and Walnut Bead Support Spindle

This gorgeous carved tagua nut and walnut bead support spindle measures 10 1/4 inches in length overall and weights 1.0 ounces. Dave has carved the tagua nut, which is sometimes referred to as vegetable ivory, with his signature leaf motif.

**Please note that carved tagua nut ivory support spindles will be limited in availability and can only be purchased when they are listed in our Etsy Shop. I cannot take orders for this spindle since finding the right ivory nut for a bead spindle is a random process. Only one nut in many might be good enough for carving a bead whorl. The reliability of being able to make one on demand is not sufficient enough for me to take orders from customers or even predict when the next one will be available. When I make one, I will just post it for sale.**
