When collecting crochet hooks, it’s about more than just the hook. It’s also about the artisan. My special hook collection includes many hooks that were lovingly turned by individuals, not manufactured in bulk.
This gorgeous hook was made by Jim’s Wood of Oregon in ebony, bocate and purple heart woods. So gorgeous! I remember that I was actually looking for a set of bocate hooks. It was during that search that I discovered this artisan and these beauties!
I am still on the look out for bocate hooks and, although I’ve been able to find some, they are mainly only in smaller crochet hook sizes. I wonder whether there is something about the wood that only allows the smaller hooks? In any case, I will continue to keep my eyes open for them.
Jim’s Wood of Oregon is an eBay seller. I can only find his shop on eBay. You can find all of his hooks available HERE.
