This is wand no. 31, made for ~kudavari as a commission.
It is 100% handcarved (including the vine and leaves) out of a birch dowel with flexcut whittling knives, sanded with 100, 300, and 600 grit sandpaper, painted with black acrylic and accented with silver leaf, and finished with a brush-on acrylic varnish. The celtic knot design and handle swirls were done with a woodburning tool. See more pictures here on my Facebook page: [link] [link] Length is 13 1/2".

Usual disclaimer: My crafts are in no way associated with occult beliefs. Wandmaking is only a hobby and is my way of showing support for J.K. Rowling's wonderful world. All wand designs I make will not be repeated and are my original designs (and thus are (c) to me), and do not intentionally bear resemblance to any other wands found anywhere unless stated otherwise.

I watch people's versions of wands and to this date, none have the beauty as this one has. Kind of like looking at Bic pens vs. Unibal .... major dif.

Thanks!! yeah, it kind of is XD But there's always a degree of difficulty when you're trying something new...but totally worth it! (If you're interested, I posted a WIP of the leaf carving here:[link])

That's great! Are you thinking about sculpting a wand (that's always a neat and easy way to go about it) or carving one?

Yeah, but my design is not finished yet. Erm, my English isn't very good.. What's the difference between the two?

Sculpting means using clay to make the handle and details, and carving means using a knife to form the wand out of a single piece of wood. I'd love to see your design when you're finished!
