and here's a detail of the handle!
Sorry for the really crappy pictures. I'll try to put up better ones later.
You like? Guess what! it's for sale!! YAY!
I'm thinking ten plus shipping, but it's negotiable. This is the first wand I've ever sold! WEll, the first good quality wand I've ever sold.
Honestly, I don't remember what the wood is. I've had the stick for over a year now. I'm thinking maple.
It'a hand-carved and wood-burned (well, I used an electric burner!). The inspirations were Victorian wands.
I waxed it by hand with bee's wax, and it smells very good! It's buffed and shiny! All that done by hand too! No electric tools for the waxing and buffing! ha ha ha! I also put a bit of white encaustic just to try and highlight the designs.
I wrapped three areas in copper wire to separate the designs. They end in little swirly rosettes.
If you'r interested, drop me a line! Also, if you have any questions or want to see more pictures, well, all you have to do is ask. =D
OH, and I'll also take commissions! I like making wands. Want something completely different than what I have here? Well, just try me! I'll see what I can do.
