Lenka’s WIRE LACE BOBBINS

Fine Bobbin – in hard maple or rosewood

This is a bobbin for very fine lace work, such as lace jewellery with precious metals, or delicate lace art with enamelled copper or stainless steel wires.
The fine bobbin was designed from scratch with an aim to provide a precision tool needed for high-end work. It caters to the needs of very fine wire, as well as fine lacemaker, and is therefore excellent for Point Ground laces such as Bucks or Chantilly, fine guipures and delicate free form weaves.

Designed by Lenka Suchanek. Made in Belgium by a master bobbin maker Jan De Maertelaere, who produces the best lacemaking bobbins in the world. It has been a pleasure to collaborate with Jan on development of this bobbin, and witness his skills and knowledge, as well as his dedication to the bobbin turning craft. I will never forget his comment, when my bobbin was finally close to fulfilling all technical aspects on my list, Jan said (with a smile): “Do not forget, that each lace bobbin must be not only functional, but also beautiful.”
I think that the Fine Bobbin for Wire Lace meets that criteria.

Medium Bobbin – with pointed or cut end

The Medium Bobbin is a versatile medium size bobbin for variety of wire lace projects from lace art and sculpture to wearable art. It is designed for work with enamelled copper, steel and bronze. Highly functional all-around tool, this bobbin is recommended for all lacemakers. It serves especially well for transitioning from fibre to wire lacework, because it accommodates palms down technique and tensioning style. It works equally well for palms up technique, which I recommend for wire work. The Medium bobbin is good for complete beginners, because it is very easy to use. Intermediate and experienced lacemakers, who explore different aspects of wire lace, will benefit from the bobbin’s adaptibility to many materials of various sizes: it works well wound with a single wire, a double wire, and even facilitate multiple strand or beaded gimp.

Medium and large bobbins are made in Spain form traditional boxwood.

Large Bobbin
This is bobbin for large scale projects, and it is therefore the best choice for oversized lace art and sculpture made from copper, bronze or steel. Bobbin accommodates stranded or braided wires as well as a single thick wire. It can be also used as a gimp bobbin in small to medium scale work.

Extra long bobbin
This is a gimp bobbin for large scale work. It can carry multi stranded or braided wire, thick wire, pre-knitted tubes, paper strips, twine or rope, roots, raffia, ribbons, silicon tubes, or any other materials to be woven into wire lace.
*It is also a great bobbin for making wool or silk lace shawls*
