Handmade Wand ''Nora''

77 Favourites
Wand number 17 [NS-844I]! This one has been in the works for about a month now, and I only got around to finishing it recently because schoolwork fills most of my weekends.

Total time: about 11 hours. Length is 10 3/4".

I've wanted to do an "ebony" wand for a long time, simply because I could just ink the whole thing black. I also got blue ribbon, so I've used it with this box. There's a small running leaf design on the handle, but it's difficult to see in this picture. When I upload the closeup it will be easier to see.

Which wood did you use for it?

The carves make it look like a ribbon is wrapped around the wand <3

Ooh! This one is nice. I like the curve in the wand itself :) Nice, dark, and mysterious.

Strangely enough, curves are harder to carve, but they take less time. Mysterious, you say? hmm........

Now that you mention that...very myserious...
Or prehaps you are getting more skilled at wandmaking? :)
