Wand delight....

I've created a couple of really nice wands lately (even if I say so myself) so here they are. Wands are my absolute favourite item to craft. The energies in them emerge as I'm crafting so when they are completed they are ready to start working with their new owner. On the subject of bonding a tool to yourself I find that blooding the item is the most effective way of bonding it to you, although I do feel that if a wand knows its yours it will deliver regardless. Here are a couple of my latest creations.

Holly Wand for the Goddess Skadi from Moonscrafts
This wand created from Holly, clear quartz, epoxy, rhinestones, ribbon and charms was a commission for a lovely customer of mine. This one is long at 23 inches, more of a blasting rod.

Sweet Chestnut Wand from Moonscrafts
This wand is 19 inches long and is made from Sweet Chestnut and set with Snowflake Obsidian and Carnelian. A dark magic wand this can be used to wealth and abundance spellworking as well as ancestral and otherworldly working and favours. This one is avaialbe from my Facebook page.

Blackthorn Wand from MoonsCrafts
This wand is amazing. It is set with a triple AAA grade bloodstone point and carnelian and garnet in epoxy sculpt, with black rhinestones and a black velvet handle. The wand is pyrographed with the Alu bind rune and  has been described by people who have heldf it as a loaded gun as it has huge amounts of energy. This wand has a new owner.

Talismans and Charms

Symbols in magical practice are extremely important, and all work as energies in their own right that persuade a particular set of energies or circumstances to take place. Some of the most potent of these are from the Northern countries of Europe. I have begun to make talismans and charms in order to keep the energy of these symbols alive. Teamed with crystals and bindrunes these pocket charms, all measuring around 20 inches long, are crafted to do the job they were intially created for. They arn't for show, but are for serious magical working. here are some of the talismans/charms I have produced up to now )0(

Into the Dark Blackthorn Wand

Into the Dark Blackthorn Wand from Moonscrafts )0(

Completed this wand today and it was rehomed instantly. However, here is the writeup as I think this one is my best to date.

Into the Dark Blackthorn Ceremonial Wand. This is a special wand designed to maximise the energy of the blackthorn. Blackthorn is associated with the goddess Morrigan. It is an extremely defensive tree so excellent in protective and defensive magic. Blackthorn is curious amongst the world of trees due to its stubborn and chaotic nature. An older piece of blackthorn will be melancholy, secretive, stubborn and difficult to direct when focusing your intent. A younger piece of blackthorn is off the scale with chaotic energy. Therefore really this is a tree that should only be used by experienced practitioners who are able to control the energy, because when it is controlled there is no other wood as powerful to use magically. Thus piece of blackthorn is from a hawthorn and blackthorn grove - the realm of the hedgewitch. The tip of this wand is set with a high grade large bloodstone point. Along the wand surrounded by sculpted spirals and leaves inset whith black rhinestones are carnelian and garnet. Bloodstone is a most powerful stone with a high iron content,and brilliant as a battle stone for healing wounds. Highly protective, it acts as a shield in the darkest of places returning the astral traveller unscathed to the earth plane. Carnelian, used thoughout millenia as a compaion of the dead in their graves, is a warrior stone for courage. Garnet is for fearlessness and is a talisman against death and injury. Working down the wand which is bound with black velvet to bring into the play the iron fist in velvet glove scenario, finally the last piece of the jigsaw is the Alu bindrune. The Alue bind rune means an inspired or ecstatic force and combines the runes Ansuz, laguz and Uruz. The formula ALU is used to raise an inspired force and to use that force for protection or other purposes - it is a charm of great power and force, perfect when teamed with the blackthorn, bloodstone, garnet and carnelian. This wand is very heavy, chunky and potent. It is not a showpiece despite its appearance, it is a full working piece and when used correctly and bonded to you, it can be unparalleled in projecting your force.
