Requests and athames ...

Wands and athames drying on the windowsill in the sun

On this beautiful sunny day I have been working on bringing my backlog of orders up to date. In the line are two staffs, two athames, one wand and one ritual cord. It is my aim to finish all of these this week so i can start to do some carved pieces which take some time, so I'm ready for the pagan camp season. These three are setting on the windowsill in the sun. )0(

The Dreamers Willow Wand

The Dreamers Willow Wand from Moon's Crafts

The Dreamer's Wand in Willow. This wand is 13.5 inches long and is crafted from goat willow, the most healing of all the willow trees. This delicate wand is pyrographed with a gold moon and a delicate pattern of spirals and swirls running to the tip. A gold moon ? i hear you ask..well bear with me ;). The handle is bound in vibrant purple velvet and the whole wand is finidhed off with a lovely charm that is made up of lovely gold spiral spacer beads, sri lankan moonstone and dream agate beads, all ended with a fancy gold moon charm.
Willow is tied to the moon and the goddess. A wand made from Willow wood has many uses: sleep with it and have more vivid dreams, use it to draw down the moon, protection for underworld journeying. Willow allows the bearer to enter the deep waters of emotions and explore them fully while being protected. it has amazing ability to heal and calm. Through our dreams we enter an altered world, almost like the middle world in shamanic lore, where everything is real but bathed in different light, different perspectives, hence the gold moons. We leave behind everything we know and accept the differences. Use your dreams for divination. keep this wand with you next to the bed. Agate helps to strengthen the memory, drives away depressing thoughts and nightmares and placing an Agate under your pillow will grant you happy dreams. A beautiful, light feminine almost fae like wand. THIS WAND IS REHOMED )0(

The Gateway Pendulum

The Gateway Pendulum in alder. The alder tree is the gateway tree, the doorway to other worlds. Travel to the other side of the veil to speak to the ancestors using this wood as a portal or psychopomp. There are protocol for doing this, always protect yourself, keep your reasons for asking the ancestors clear and concise along with your questioning. Don't expect to like what answers you are given but remember they are sent from the universe and via ancient wisdom and should be respected. Alder is the darkest tree, but lesser known for its funereal uses and darker mythologies. Alder links life and death together via a single breath. This pendulum is pyrographed with a doorway. it has a handmade copper spiral which delves deep into the wood and connects it to the cord. The beads are black glass lampwork, hematite and bone, and the pendulum is finished with a black silk cord and a large bronze doorway charm. REHOMED today )0(
