This is a Celtic love spoon I made for my sister in law out of a piece of almond wood for Christmas. She has a dragonfly collection so I scoured google images until I found a image I liked, marched out to the firewood pile, grabbed a piece of firewood and got started. Added a “J” for Jamie (sister in law) and put a pieces of obsidian inlay because she lives in bend Oregon the obsidian capitol of the world, hoping it would hit home. Finished with my favorite danish oil.

Beautiful work. The simplest things are the hardest to make. Your heart shows through on this one.
