One of the things I do it make stick pins. They vary from 2 or 3 inches to close to 2 feet long.
Here's a small selection. They're mostly 5" to 8" long.

Neat Shinnen. It always interests me in what people do with their time. Keep up the good work.

Ohhh they are beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing. What a lovely craft you have ... I love the blue one.

Are they for hats ... or clothes ... or hair?

Hi Aida,
Thanks. It's nice that you like them. I have many, many more. I just keep making them and putting them in my jewellery box, where they hide wink.png. Many are on stands, that reside on top of the writing desk, unless my daughter's cat is visiting.:ohmy: I'll post of picture.

Thanks. The light blue/green one? It's made of some sort of shell, very fragile.
The small ones, of which there are none in the picture, cold be used as lapel pin.
The longer one's would work as hat pins, yes.
I have a couple, well over a foot long, I'm not sure what they could be used for, perhaps harpooning fish wink.png
For the most part they're pretty much useless. I just like making them.
