Default Custom Walking Stick for a Custom Head.

Hi there!

A friend recently gave me something that looks like a lump of glass but
could be possibly used as a head to a walking stick or walking cane.
Now, I'm a bit at a lost as to what to do next and was wondering if
anybody could offer suggestions for a web site, store, or whatever that
would attach my lump to the top of a walking stick.

Thanks for the help!
Eddy

[I don't think a website is going to work, Eddy. This sounds like a job for
metal...]

Sorry, what do you mean by "metal"?

Lump of glass? Might be obsidian or either way if you wanted to drill
same, lapidary equipment or a diamond drill so you could attach it to
your cane. Another idea is to fashion a claws foot of metal (aluminum?)
to hold same to be attached to your stick. Hard to really say what can
be done with it without seeing it.

[It would be unlikely that you'd be able to find anything premade on any
website that will hold your irregular lump of glass and attach it to a
walking stick. You'll need to cast or fabricate something, and metal is what
you'd normally use to do that with. It can be bronze, copper, gold, silver,
steel, whatever, but it has to be custom-fitted in order to work. Claws,
prongs, bezels, or screwed-on retaining elements can be used - whatever
works...]
