Heirloom quality handcrafted spinning tools, jewelry, and accessories. Functional Art at its Finest!

I feature fine handcrafted spindles and accessories for spinning yarn, and a variety of jewelry. My spinning tools not only display the finest of design aesthetic and beauty - they are made to perform exceptionally well and to last a lifetime.

I have spent 7+ years perfecting my spindles and jewelry - with a focus on vibrant, elegant, and colorful designs that incorporate aspects of Jewelry and Steampunk (using antique and vintage timepieces) Design styles that are truly unique. I like to think outside the box to bring fresh new designs to the ancient art of spinning fibers.

I've had an interest in, and have worked at wood and steel furniture making and remodeling, including creating, inventing, and patenting many of my designs, as well as an eye for and joy of interior design for the past 25+ years. My wife and partner, Yani, has been involved in fiber arts and spinning for 40+ years and she got me hooked!  Developing and handcrafting the spinning tools that are on our Etsy Shop and website has grown out of these combined interests and experiences, and I'm positive that you'll enjoy making your own creations with these fine tools!
