Latest wand is shop, Plum wood, very distinctive by nature.
" Clear water running over red gold river pebbles, in the early spring. Drifting white petals floating, carrying dreams along the way. Beautiful nature gives up her secret workings to those who are quiet and listen."
Our Plum Wood is freely given from a few older wild plum trees near us. There will only be the occasional wands from these trees, and they are truly unique. The wood is a combination of gold, golden tan, and reddish gold, with dark brown markings here and there, (think delicate leopard print.) This slender wand is full of natural twists and turns, a bit like a lightning bolt. It holds a shine from the wax very well, so it is glossy looking. There is a joyful feel about this wand.
Approx. 13 1/2 inches or (35 1/2 cm)
Grip end is approx. 1 inches around
or (2 1/2 cm).
Tip end is approx. 3/4 in. around (1 1/2 cm)
Our wands are created from "freely given wood". Not all wood can be wands, but when a piece is found to possess an energy compatible to wand making, it begins a journey to discover a new life.
Future wands are:
1.) Examined for shape and feel
2.) Bark removed
4.) If the wand requests designs they are added by hand at this stage.
5.) Sanded with different grades of paper until smooth
6.) Waxed with soy wax for protection and a light shine.
Before wands are sent out, they receive a cleansing in smoke to remove any of the wandmaker's energies, so that the wand can over time attune to it's new partner. All wands are made in the spirit of love and wanting to bring objects of art to others.
All wands arrive with in a cloth pouch for safe keeping. (fabric varies.)
