I had never heard of these Ron, looked up & found a bundle of 50 sticks on Ebay for &60 (US) but no ship to NZ.
They look a fascinating specimen to play with, love what you have done with them mate
cheers

That sure is a great looking ring box Ron, I don’t think we have anything like a chollo cactus out here in Aus.
and wouldn’t get through customs..

Thanks for the thought Ron, but unfortunately I very much doubt they would make it thru our Customs / border control, any organic material never seems to make it. Finished product s OK, so we will continue to admire your handiwork from afar :)
cheers
