Vintage Inspired Resin Cameo Needle Minders

They're back!  After a long absence, we have just listed new vintage inspired resin cameo needle minders to the "Fiber Art Tools" section of our Etsy shop.

These 1 1/2" long cameo needle minders were made from gorgeous vintage inspired resin cameos. Dave has inlayed a rare earth magnet with clear resin on the back, and also inlayed another rare earth magnet into white faux ivory resin that he turned on the lathe. Together, these beauties will "mind" your needle conveniently on your project! Separated, each cameo needle minder would also make a beautiful refrigerator 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.
