I used a Banksia pod for the handle and found it to be quite durable once I got past the unstable outer material. I was alarmed that the many holes would make it unstable but found the core of the pod to be quite dense and strong. I filled them with epoxy and wax to create a jewel like treasure. The texture of the pod shows how Mother Nature provides some interesting creations to play with.
