Ellwyn’s Fairy Wand I'm not sure what type of wood this one is ... probably a cedar or pine since that’s mostly what's in the forest in the area where I found it (in the Modoc Volcanic area near Medicine Lake).  The sphere is some sort of agate and it paired up with a Lithium Quartz point.  The dangles here have Purple Chalcedony and Rainbow Moonstone beads on them and the little spirals around the sphere have Swarovsky crystals along their length and Rainbow Moonstone beads at the ends.

Wands

While on vacation up in Mt Shasta a few years ago I saw some hand made wands made with crystals and wrapped in leather.  I loved the idea but decided to use wood for the wand instead of leather wrapped metal.  Most of the wands I’ve made are from wood collected in the Mt Shasta area because I love the energy that the wood holds. Click a thumbnail to enlarge the pictures The Water Healer When we were up in the Mount Shasta area in 2007, one of the places we visited was Medicine Lake.  While walking back to the truck, for some reason I looked to my left and there was a piece of driftwood that seemed to be saying "take me home", so I did.   I bought some small spheres and points, and let them choose where they were going to go ... and there was no way I could separate this little Ocean Jasper sphere from that piece of driftwood!  I'm pretty pleased with the way this turned out, especially since she's the first wand I made.  :-) While playing with materials, I decided I liked the look of wire wrap around the bottom of the point and sphere (plus it helps cover up the glue) and used the pink to help bring out some of the softer tones in the Ocean Jasper.  The Quartz point took to the sphere almost immediately, and I added a few beaded details using more Ocean Jasper and Tourmilated Quartz beads.  A little bit of white leather and some ribbon, and viola!  I'm really happy with the energy this gal gives off.
Simple Eucalyptus I was at work one day and the grounds keeping crew had butchered (they have no clue what they are doing) one of the Eucalyptus trees near the building entrance.  There was one little branch that they missed when they were hauling the debris off and it seemed sad so I took it home.  I found an awesome Rutilated Rose Quartz sphere and paired it up with a Tangerine Quartz point.  This gal wanted to be more simple than my other wands, so no dangles and no leather for her.
The Amethyst Star And this one is made with Ametrine, Amethyst, and Citrine.  The sphere is Ametrine and the point is Citrine ... there are Amethyst, Ametrine, and Citrine beads in the dangles
Fox's Feather Wand Her wood was found the same area I got my first piece (at Medicine Lake) so I wasn't at all surprised that it wanted to be with an Ocean Jasper sphere.  It got paired with a Tibetan quartz point.  The dangles have more Ocean Jasper and some Rutilated Quartz beads on them. After I got this made I found out that Fox had brought home a feather from her family vacation so I added some extra ribbon to allow the feather to be tied to the wand.  The last two photos are some Fox took with the feather added.
These next two were actually made from the same branch.  While up in the Shasta area in 2007 we actually stayed in Mt. Shasta City.  In the backyard of the house we were renting there was a walnut tree and a day before we left, it dropped a branch in front of my truck ... so I took it home along with that piece of driftwood from Medicine Lake. The Little Dragon This one is made with a Rutilated Quartz sphere and a Tibetan Quartz point.  There are Rutilated Quartz and Rose Quartz beads in the dangles.
