wand making...

Am making a new wand. Manzanita wood - all fire energy. Have a friend who can't hold the darn thing. Makes her sweat instantly. Its odd how you can have a piece of wood for years and then one day its time to do something with it. I had even started it before but it clearly wasn't time to make the wand. Have an amethsyt herkimer diamond that was so easy to mount on the top end that I didn't have time to blink. Took me maybe 5 minutes. A task that can take an hour with a recalcitrant quartz crystal. Copper and silver wire. Doing this new bit with spirals where the wire comes back through the center of the spiral and then wraps around the wood. So far so good. Hematite on the bottom. Am now adding stones. Aquamarine for water, likely some lapis and some green agate for earth. Am using purple beeswax and its working very effectively to stick stuff into little holes and such. Its great fun. All left side of brain work. Makes me happy.
