I'll post some individual pics later, but here's a group shot-the top,the middle, the bottom-because it's hard to get a full length shot of a skinny stick and show any detail!



Umbrella, curtain rod, umbrella, umbrella, curtain rod, cane. Yup, that's a wee compass on the cane.

That's really ingenious. Are the thinner umbrella sticks sturdy enough? I love the embellishments.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Well, they wouldn't be that great for someone who needs a cane for support, they are fairly lightweight. But they look cool, and I've sold a couple for people who cosplay, do steampunk costumes, stuff like that. But yeah, more of an art object than a useful walking stick. There's tons of sealer on them to protect the surface and make them more durable.
And thanks, Alchamy!
