Take The Pledge!

Buy Handmade!

Support Independent Artists.

Some years ago, after an accident, I searched high and low east to west, web stores, catalogs...for a cool cane to make lemonade from a lemon. I wanted something unique and distinctive. Everywhere I went I saw the same dreary medical cold metal canes or boring plain wood. I had a total of 2 color choices; black and brown!

I wanted to ditch the cane that was given to me by my insurance company but of course I could not do that.

Finally I thought, Why not just make it? I love to paint, so what is the problem?

I found all sorts of cool paints with glitters, gold, silver....I began making stencils of Celtic Knots and Chains that I loved. I had so much fun making my cane that I began doing it for friends and relatives.

Pretty soon people were asking me to make them and sell them at local Art stores.

Just in time for the Holidays! I have a silver one in my store.

My canes are hand painted wood acrylic silver paint on black.

They last many years, protective clear coating has been applied.

Why wear a cold boring metal cane that everyone else has? By purchasing this cane, you are not only supporting an artist (me) but your cane will age gracefully and give you many many years of pleasure.

I always receive so many compliments on my canes all over the world, too many to count!

An impressive piece of wearable art.

Complete with rubber bottom.

Approximate 37 1/2 inches long.

Wear it in good health and with attitude!

So take the pledge to buy handmade and request that others do the same for you!

Thank you, Happy Holidays and most of all have fun!

I Took The Handmade Pledge!
