Handmade Wand ''Lynette'' JP-238n by PraeclarusWands Handmade Wand ''Lynette'' JP-238n by PraeclarusWands
5/13: Wow, a DD?! Did not expected that at all! Thank you!

Here it is - the finished version of the WIP pic I posted on Tuesday. It's carved from walnut, sanded with 150, 300, and 600 grit sandpaper, stained with Minwax English Chestnut and Cherry colored stains, and finished with a couple coats of acrylic varnish.

The silver moon was done with silver paint and a coat of silver leaf, then varnished over. The moon design itself was burned in with a woodburning tool. The box is made with rawboard covered with craft paper. The wand bed fabric is a navy blue velvet, and the ribbon is a sheer silver.

Praeclarus Wands and the Praeclarus Wands logo are trademarks of Maranda Li. Please don't upload my work to other places without asking first! (That's stealing.)

Usual disclaimer: My crafts are in no way associated with religious/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.

Handmade Wand JP-238n by ~PraeclarusWands is a wonderful clean and simple wood work, the addition of the luxurious box (also handmade!) takes it a notch higher. ( Suggested by Brookette and Featured by Talty )

Thanks for your interest! Unfortunately, this wand's already been sent to its owner. (It was a one-of-a-kind commission, like the rest of my wands, so I won't be carving this design again.) Sorry 'bout that.

I don't have any ready-made wands for sale since I mostly do custom work, but all the info for commissioning a custom wand is right here. I'm in school at the moment, working towards two Bachelor's degrees, so my commissions are closed, but they'll open up for more wands later! (I'll update my dA journal when that happens - probably within a month or so.)

I remember making a wand out of a stick and some paper in elementary school, but the carving started after I came back from seeing DH pt 1. I asked my dad to take me to a craft store so I could buy a dowel (I couldn't drive yet) and I ended up making my personal wand out of it!
