Glam Sticks and Stones

  Continuing my sticks and stones series I am going to look at glam, sparkly sticks and stones in my quest to find fashionable walking sticks and fabulous jewellery for every occasion. 

  Today I am looking at Glamsticks (a link to their website and SM is provided below) which makes glam, sparkly walking sticks (folding or non folding), crutches and White canes.  Glamsticks was established by  Debra Deboo and is now owned by Sharon Farley-Mason. GlamSticks won the Disability Motoring Product of the Year 2011.  There are lots of designs - Chameleon, SparkleStick or GlitterWings to name but a few, or for an extra £5 you can design your own. As each stick is hand painted and the diamant√© put on by hand they do take several weeks to be made, but they are well worth the wait.
I think the most important thing to note about the founder and owner of Glamsticks is that as they are disabled and understand that the sticks/ crutches need to be both comfortable and stylish. There is no point having an eyecatching stick of it is uncomfortable to hold. In the about Glamsticks section Debra stated that she "wanted to look fab" and Glamsticks certainly do that. Hospital sticks, whilst they do the job, are grey and don't make you feel better or glamorous. Whilst a sparkly stick won't make you better it will certainly make you smile and feel glam.

Jewellery wise you can either look like a glitterball and go for all out sparkle - paste jewellery can be found at all price points from QVC UK, Debenhams, Accessorize down to Claire's Accesories. Swarovski is more expensive but if you just wanted to put all the focus on the stick and one piece of jewellery that would look great too.
