Handmade Wand ''Sherlock'' by PraeclarusWands Handmade Wand ''Sherlock'' by PraeclarusWands
SOLD.

Wand no. 44.
This wand is based on Sherlock Holmes, as played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC series "Sherlock." It was hand-carved from a poplar dowel (it had mineral stains already in it, hence the dark brown color), sanded, stained with a light golden oak to enhance the mineral color, and finished with acrylic sealer.

The shape of the piece is reminiscent of Sherlock's iconic coat ([link]) and the pointed handle symbolizes Holmes' sharp intellect. In-universe, the 12.5" wand is Elder with a core of Dragon Heartstring and unyielding flexibility. According to Pottermore, Elder bonds only to those very unusual individuals and is the superior of his/her company. Bearers of Elder are marked out for a special destiny and feel a powerful affinity with those chosen by Rowan wands (John Watson).

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.

That's a good idea. I'll start putting one together over the summer, when I have access to all my supplies again! :D
