Anyone use Hiking Stick Medallions on your sticks to designate places you've hiked?
It's an old tradition -- but many locations sell them to hikers.

Thes stick adornment badges/shields are commonly sold in gift shops in towns and villages in the main tourist

areas, throught the UK especially in the Yorkshire Dale and the Lake District, good selections on ebay.co.uk.

One or two mw]embers of our stick club embelish sticks with old coins,medallions, charms as used on bracelets etc

by carving a hole in the shank or handle and cold casting them in with clear resin.

Cow Horn handles are used a lot with all the previously mentioned or photographs of loved ones or pets. Items inset this way

can be done with coloured glitter firt,s allowed to set then a coin or simillar set above the coloured base to give a striking effect

when finished, finishing with a domed top acts like a magnifyer for more clarity.
