Posting Day!

Five new nosties on Etsy today, and six new needlecases on eBay!

My favorites of the needle cases (which are also multiply handy for carrying toothpicks), are these two guys:

The top one is one of my custom colors of Dymondwood, and I inlaid it with abalone shell. It's so difficult to capture the sparkles of the shell -- they look almost rainbowy, and reflect greens and pinks and blues in the light. Actually this is one of my favorite combinations of Dyed Hardwood + natural material (i.e. shell/stone).

A new favorite combo I just created is the second case down -- "Flying" Dyed Hardwood + Chrysocolla gemstones. I looooooooove the blueness of the stones -- they look sumtuously gorgeous! (I think it's even prettier in the hand than on the photograph).

(Both of the above have 24k gold plated findings)


  1. Hi Katherine,
    I absolutely love these toothpick holders. I'd like to buy the top one. Father's Day is coming up and thought this would make a great gift for hubby.

    Just let me know, and I'll give your mom the payment.

    Katherine, you might want to join Entrecard. You'll get more exposure that way also.

    You may visit me at or at

  2. Hi Katherine,
    Just stopped by to say that the toothpick holder is truly a work of art. I can't wait to give it to my husband. I showed it to people at work and everbody was impressed. Great job.

    By the way, welcome to the blogosphere. Enjoy.
