THIS is the second “Talking Stick” I've made and I'm inspired to make more!

TALKING sticks have been used by different cultures for centuries. The most well known usage is within the Native American culture. They use these sticks in council circles to designate who has the right to speak. The holder of the talking stick may speak as long as they want while everyone else remains silent and listens respectfully.

IF you are into ceremony or healing, this stick can also be used as a "Prayer Stick" and/or "Healing Staff."

Items Used

THE beautiful Howlite turquoise-colored stones are inlaid directly into the stick. They are secured with super glue gel, then a light edging of blue sparkle glue for appearance. The white fur is rabbit. I made the little blue suede medicine bag. All the beads are either silver or glass.

The iridescent blue, round center piece on the medicine bag in photo #4 is made of art glass with a crescent moon motif - but it's hard to see in this picture. (Click on the "zoom" link below picture to see a better version of photo.)

The little medicine bag is functional and waiting for you to put your treasure in it.

WHETHER you use this stick ceremonially or if you just want to use it to beat your spouse over the head (gently, of course...) and this brings you joy, then my mission is complete!

*** THIS STICK IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND PIECE AND IS SIGNED AND
DATED BY THE ARTIST ON THE BOTTOM OF STICK ***

SHIPPING

The reason it says $0.00 under "shipping" at the very bottom of the page is due to the following variables:

If you want me to mail it using the United States Postal Service "Priority Mail," which is generally less expensive than Federal Express but slower, THEN PLEASE BEFORE YOU PAY FOR THE ITEM, EMAIL ME YOUR FULL ADDRESS AND I WILL CONFIRM YOUR SHIPPING PRICE. HERE'S WHY:

Using "Priority Mail," the shipping price is going to vary depending upon the size, weight and package shape and what mailing zone you are in. (This is especially true with the walking sticks - due to the odd shaped packaging, they won't give me a flat-rate shipping price without seeing it first)

OTHERWISE,

I prefer to ship using Federal Express even though it's a little more money. It's faster and more reliable. Their rates as based upon the final packaging weight, how soon you want it and if it's going to a home or business. SO AGAIN, PLEASE EMAIL ME YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS, IF IT'S A HOME OR BUSINESS AND HOW SOON YOU WANT IT. And I will email you back the shipping price.


My goal is to mail your stick within 3 days of payment clearance; (except PayPal, which is instantaneous); however, if there are circumstances that interfere with that goal, I promise to stay in prompt communication with you!

*************************************************************

-- INTERNATIONAL: I use "Priority Mail International" or "Federal "Express. Whichever you choose. Please email me with complete address, country, etc. and I will research a shipping price. Note that you may be charged a "custom's fee" when you pick up your package. I believe this cost is your responsibility. I will try to find that out as part of my research.

SORRY, BUT I DO NOT PAY FOR INSURANCE OR DELIVERY
CONFIRMATION ON INT'L ORDERS.
**************************************************************

If you would like to receive the stick directly from me and you are in Washington State, we could meet somewhere public (i.e., a Starbucks - gee, I wonder where we'd find one of those???!!!). Please email me and we can set something up. I live in the Seattle area.
