It's our first "random friday freebie" for 2015 and we have something very special planned for you! We are giving away this beautiful, handcrafted, interchangeable crochet hook set!
We have teamed up with local artisans, Dave and Carolyn of 2GoodClaymates, and we are very excited to be able to offer this wonderful set valued at $65.00 USD (approx. $80.00 CAD). This interchangeable crochet hook is not only pretty to look at, but it also feels great in your hand.
The flowers, leaves, and their signature lady bugs are not painted on, but rather they are created in the clay itself from Dave and Carolyn's own canes. Thin slices from the canes are then carefully applied to the crochet hook. Each hook they make then goes through a process which involves 3 bakings. The hook is then sanded by hand to create a silky smooth finish. Although this next picture is of their coloured floral set, it gives you an idea as to just how labour intensive this process is.
To ensure authenticity the bottom of hook is stamped with their signature logo.
Also included with this kit are 2 super adorable crochet stitch markers...a sweet little lady bug and a double sided leaf. They are perfect for crochet as they easily open to attach to your stitches and stay securely closed until removed. Plus, the polymer clay is super light so they don't pull on your work.
This set includes 8 interchangeable heads ranging in size from a 3.00 mm to a 7.00 mm, and the entire set is nicely enclosed in this soft faux leatherette case that fits in the palm of your hand.
