One of a kind.  I never duplicate.  This is a Welsh love spoon carved from a piece of walnut.  Nothing special, but it's my own design. 



Hope you like it.

Hey!!!  Good to see you!  When I saw the thumbnail, I immediately began pining for your wood works...and what a nice surprise...it was you!!!

It is gorgeous...the hearts within the twists are just beautiful and the wood remains the star...

It's "nothing special" in the same way that unicorns and fairies are "common, everyday sights".  That's one spoon-errific creation; well done!

I love how the twisted handle ends both terminate in hearts--what's the story behind Welsh love spoons?  Is it just that they incorporate heart shapes, that they're meant as gifts for someone you care for, or something else?   A lonely wood golem I know really wants to know . . .

Welsh love spoons is almost a misnomer.  They were originally made for someone you wanted to honor. 

The legend is that a fellow would be smitten with a girl, and would carve a spoon to show his intentions.  If she accepted his gift, they were betrothed.  However, according to the experts, this is just a story.

These days, the love spoons are made according to the artist.  I just happen to like intertwined hearts.

It's good to be back, although it may be temporary.  All depends on how much time I get to craft these days.
