Those Golden Tiki swizzles are nice hang10tiki.

I've been wanting to display my swizzles like this for a while now and after this thread was bumped back up to the top it inspired me to get off my arse. Here's the first one i did last night, i still have enough (tiki) swizzles for at least one, most likely two, more. And i'll frame them with some bamboo framing material i have.
I used some foam core board, spray adhesive to hold the placemats (found in a thriftstore) down and sewed the swizzles on with fishing wire.

Thanks hang10tiki.

Here's the second one finished and framed (I also framed the first one like this). I have enough swizzles left for one more but i want to try and find the same placemats i used on the first two before i do the last one.

Swizzle, great job with these display cases! Great collections you've amassed, too. I have to ask: where are the three picks with kiwi birds from?

Just ogling them some more and I think I just answered my own question. New Zealand Air?

Thanks finky099 and Jon.

Yep, you're right finky. Air New Zealand. When i was in the U.S. earlier this year a friend scored a bag of swizzle sticks and told me to go through them and take what i wanted (after she had taken all the tiki ones obviously ) and i found those along with a couple of cool ones with lobsters on them. The orange one in the middle, whose beak is broken of the most, the logo is back to front compared to the other two. Or is it the other way around? That one is correct and the other two were poured wrong?

And here's a better pic of my first one i did now that it has been framed.

I was on an Air New Zealand swizzle stick buying spree for a while. They made some cute swizzles.

Thanks, Swizzle. I couldn't even tell the orange one was only partially-beaked until you mentioned it. Still looks fantastic. I was in NZ for about 10 days earlier this year and hoped to find some cool swizzles, but no such luck.

Cheers!
