This unique spindle is all about you - and a perfect gifting spindle that is personalized with your choice of Zodiac Sign and Birthstone Crystal that is mounted to coordinate together. This amazingly detailed coin whorl is prepared and a thick layer of epoxy resin is applied to the top side to preserve the beauty and provides a smooth snag-free finish that will last. The bottom side of the whorl has a large silver plated cap mounted to it with 6 Birthstone color Preciosa Crystal Rhinestones (made in the Czech Republic) mounted inside - along with an additional 11 Black Diamond color crystals and an additional Birthstone Color crystal mounted next to your Zodiac Sign.

The shaft is made from a high-carbon spring steel and is colored with a 2-coat-process, high temperature powder-coat paint. All components, including a multi-crystal spacer bead and silver plated and stainless steel findings are all assembled with high strength 2-part industrial epoxy - and the aluminum whorl coin is post assembly milled and polished to a smooth shine and a perfect balance. This medium weight drop spindle has one of the best and longest lasting spins that I have made to date and it will work with almost any fiber.

Beautiful spindle and spins like a dream!

This is a little beauty. It is definitely well made. I have spun a little with it. It doesn’t retain the spin, as much as I would like, but I can deal with that!

And here I thought nothing could top that last spindle. Guess I was wrong, because this one is beyond fabulous! Gorgeous, sparkly, customized and a long stable spin time! What more could I want? Thanks John!! Tell Kyoku I am very pleased and I said she and Neville should both get more treats!
