Mother's Day

Look what Dick made me for Mother's Day. It's a hand-turned holder to display some of my antique crochet hooks. The center section is maple burl and he filled some of the wood's natural voids with turquoise. The top and pedestal are Madagascar ebony. The base is elephant ivory from the 1920's (pre-ban). He's been working on this for over a month. I knew he was turning something for me but I had no idea what the final product would be. My photos don't begin to do justice to this - it is stunningly gorgeous.I love it! Happy Mother's Day y'all!
