So I did this thing…

I’ve been making bead spindles for a while now. Bead spindles are a wonderfully stripped-down, primitive style sort of spinning device that at the most basic, consists of a stick and a weight.
Mine are made from hand-shaped wooden shafts with fancy beads as the whorl/weight. They are simple, elegant, and fun to use and demonstrate with, as you’ll see if you watch this video of me being a total goober while showing you how it’s done!
