Here are the various products that I’m offering currently:

1. Little Wooden Clubs
Here’s your own personal juggling good-luck charm, made by me in my humble basement woodshop. These normally range in size from an inch to an inch and a half or so, proportioned accordingly. This example was made from Holly, which grows in many parts of the world.

2. Bangles
A bangle is a little wooden club with a little silver or gold wire loop epoxied into its little wooden knob. Use them in necklaces, as charms for bracelets, or as ornamentation for how/where/when the spirit moves you. The bangle you see here was turned from Cherry, from the Appalachian Mountains.

3. Baubles
A bauble is a little wooden club with little silver or gold wire loops epoxied into both ends. The little wire loops can be daisy-chained together to form bracelets, anklets, or necklaces. Clasps are also available. (With 3,504 of these, you could make a unique and grotesquely expensive doorway bead curtain. Or not.) Shown here is part of a bracelet chain of Padauk baubles. Padauk is pronounced “pad-OOK”, and is native to central and west Africa. To prevent clunky bracelet chains, I make these somewhat smaller than average.

4. Zipper Pulls
5. Mobile Phone Charm/Flash/Bling
I once attached a bangle to my knapsack zipper as a pull, and the little club snapped in half after a month or so of normal use. I made its larger and beefier replacement from very hard wood and steel piano wire, and I expect it to last a long time. I don’t personally adorn my phone with doodads, but if I did, I’d want them to be similarly sturdy. As shown here, your zipper pull will come with a split ring for easy attachment, and your mobile phone charm will include a cord loop. The sample zipper pull shown here is made from North American Maple, and the phone charm is Purpleheart, which grows in the tropical regions of Central and South America. Zipper pulls are made larger than normal, whereas phone charms are on the small side.

6. Lapel Pins
Here’s a great way to declare yourself as a juggler: little wooden clubs that you can pin to your hat, collar, necktie, or, yes, lapel. Show here is a little wooden club made from Bocote, a Mexican wood. These are larger than usual, to ensure lodging the metal pin securely.

7. and 8. Earrings
These are bangles with pierced earlobe hook thingies in silver or gold; they’re available as singles or matched pairs. The single earring shown here (7) was made of Redheart, from Mexico, with silver appointments; the matched pair (8) are Osage Orange and gold – this wood grows in the southwest US.
