frilled-necked lizard

I wanted to add some flair to our everyday punch. Taking inspiration from the frilled-necked lizard, I sewed thin wooden dowels between two strips of fabric then brought one side together to form a small ring around an elastic bracelet. I made the outer ring large enough to be able to pass over the wrist, but small enough so that it wouldn’t pass unless some force was applied. This way the piece “pops” into place when a punch is thrown. In hindsight, I could have included some sort of string mechanism that opens the piece as you extend your arm, in its current form, it is a little awkward to reset without using both hands.
