This is the perfect gift for your friend who loves artisan hand-woven textiles! This is a petite delight in sterling silver, a silver weaving shuttle with just a touch of brass and silver braid on the bobbin.
The simplest shuttles, known as “stick shuttles”, are made from a flat, narrow piece of wood with notches on the ends to hold the weft yarn. More complicated shuttles incorporate bobbins or pirns. In the United States, shuttles are often made of wood from the flowering dogwood, because it is hard, resists splintering, and can be polished to a very smooth finish that won’t snag the threads of the warp.
The silver weaving shuttle design measures 30 mm from end to end. This silver weaving shuttle is unmarked .925 and it weighs 3.5 grams. Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
