yes beautiful, I do love them, but don't know if I could spend that much on hooks...the ones I have will last just as long if taken care of...if I won the lottery, then I think that is one thing I would treat myself too...LOL

Glass, I don't know about those...pretty, but would be worried about them breaking...

I have 3 of those hooks (F,G,H). They're absolutely gorgeous and a pleasure to work with. Bill is very prompt with the shipping too. Someday I'll get the remaining sizes and the case. I think it's worthwhile spending on a beautifully made object like that, which you will always treasure :D

They are handmade with exotic wood and they are $14 each. I think that is pretty reasonable.

Cando - do you know how long it takes for them to respond to an email? I'm impatient..yes I am. I emailed last night and haven't heard back yet. LOL


Edit to add:

Ok so I noticed on his site that the ones I requested have SOLD by them but I haven't heard back yet....

You should hear from him pretty quickly. I wrote to him very late one night and got a reply next morning saying he's set aside the ones I liked. And I too think $14 is a good price :D
