I love those crochet hooks from Clover with the handles on them. But the color is just very boring. So I made my own with polymer clay. These handles are even bigger than Clover and it's really comfortable crocheting.



This is how I did it:
Use about 15-16 grams of clay for each handle. Knead it until soft and make a long shape. Place the hook on the clay and push it into the clay.

Use a different color clay to decorate it. You can leave it round or slightly flatten the handle, whatever your prefer.



Use a rubber stamp to press the crochet hook number in the clay. Bake it in the oven according to the instructions and lacque it when it's cooled down.

That is such a creative idea! Most of my hooks are basic Boye aluminum hooks. Would those work as well, even if they are a colored aluminum? Or would the steel hooks be preferred? I am just wondering because I would hate for my hooks to be ruined, let alone explode in my oven....
