How do you like your wand ???

Post by MsMollimizz »

Do you prefer wood or metal ?
Do you prefer certain woods ?
Does it grow near you ?
Does hazelnut grow near you ?
Do you have to have a crystal point on top ?
Clear paint or glitter ?
Handle is wrapped or not ?
Handle color matches point's wrap ?
One color handle or colors wrapped together on handle ?
Layers of colors or twisted together ?
Stone on both ends or one end only ?
More than one stone not necessarily on each end ?
No stone on either end ?
Just a wand with clear paint or glitter ?
Lots of glitter, medium, or lightly ?
What colors of glitter ?

Off hand, that's all I can think of...
...but that will give me food for thought for
at least a little while !

I think people see all the questions and get intimidated XZD

My wand is literally a whittled stick. My friend made it for me. It has a yellow ribbon on it. It's very very simple. I don't know what kind of wood it is.

I normally don't use a wand, though. I only use it outside or in large spaces, and even then not always.

Too many questions ?
Only need to copy and paste, easiest way to answer...
I'm trying to get different opinions so I get an idea
what people like. I'm not wanting to make them
just for my likes, regardless if they want one
or not.

Do you prefer wood or metal ? My personal wand is a long (about 12cm) column of white calcite

But I also have another I first started out with which is a piece of gnarled paperbark driftwood I found in a swamp.

Do you prefer certain woods ? I like the feeling of worn wood

Does it grow near you ? Yes

Does hazelnut grow near you ? No

Do you have to have a crystal point on top ? No

Clear paint or glitter ? Clear

Handle is wrapped or not ? Either

Handle color matches point's wrap ? Not necessarily

One color handle or colors wrapped together on handle ? One

Layers of colors or twisted together ? No

Stone on both ends or one end only ? One

More than one stone not necessarily on each end ? No, but I've seen wands I liked that had them set into the handle like the link below

That wand was awesome !
I'm not that good, yet !
Thanks for posting, it gives me ideas as to what others
like, so I don't just make what I like !
Thanks again...

I found my wand when I was out for a walk in the woods picking up litter into a trash bag to throw away. It resonated with me and I knew it was a gift from the earth as a thank you.

So I took it home and attached a crystal to the end, they seemed to belong together.

When I get my wood burning kit I'm going to burn some runes into it but it works great as it is.

<<<<wands...like the branch of the tree extending far out into the sky... the extension of my grace and energy, flowing waving bending in the breeze, my fiery component of will, ready and willing to explode with a burst of my own inner power, poised on the tip of the wind, accepting of the moment when the rush of force flows all at once through my body, down my arm, and out in to the wand of my desire, to pierce through air and into the ether beyond >>>>

It's plain but it's cute! Between the strong energy it already had and the herkimer diamond I used for the tip, my arms sometimes get all goosebumpy when I pick it up. I can't wait to feel the energy after I burn my runes into it. ^_^

My sister made my wand for me as a present when I first began showing interest in the Craft. I don't know what kind of wood she used, but she tied a piece of clear quartz to the end. It's about nine inches long, has runes inscribed in it and also has an image of the Goddess as my sister imagines Her inscribed in it as well. I woke up one morning and found it on my nightstand and I was deeply touched by the gesture.

carve Runes and such along the shaft !
