    Bead Bowls

    Bead Bowls

    Keep your beads in order with this beautiful olive wood bowl!

    Hand turned by my talented husband David at Arrowsmith Woodturning these unique bead bowls are ideal for storing beads or stitch markers.

    The compact handturned olive wood bowl has a swivel action lid which closes tightly and stops any beads escaping all over the floor!

    Olive wood has a highly variable grain and therefore each one will have its own unique pattern. Sanded smooth and finished with high quality wax with a pretty tree design - or a message of your choice engraved on the lid, these bowls can be made to order and would make a wonderful gift for any knitter, or why not treat yourself?
