This was a requested piece by a friend of mine. I had a short willow branch, that had an alomst 90 degree turn at what is now the top. I cut that flat to create the and grip and angles the bottom to take advantage of the graceful natural curve. The sharock, cross and nickname were requested items to be added as artwork. I to ideas from pictures I found on the internet, and then made adjustments to fit my vision. I used colonial maple stain for the cross, joco bean for the nick name, and green model paint for the shamrock. I also had a small branch that had some slight rot in it next to the word Black, that I hollowed out, and added an agate for color.
