It looks so good! I love the colors you chose. What do the markings on it mean, if you don’t mind me asking? It looks like runes, but I don’t know runes so I’m not sure :woman_shrugging:

@christina4 @Siofra Thank you :kissing_heart: Ive had the stuff there to do it for a while but I just wasn’t sure what to do with it? So I scoured Google images and looked for crystal and herb properties and just went with it :heart:

@MeganB Thank you also :heart: they are Runes :grin: I chose ones that correspond to energy, transformation, light, magic, divination and protection :grin: they aren’t as neat as the rest of the wand because fine details aren’t part of my crafting skill lol :heart:

I used an Amethyst for the point, Smokey Quartz for the base and the jute twine has dried rosemary leaves beneath it :heart: and the little jar is a spell jar with my hair and annointing oil to connect with it :heart:

This is phenomenal! I agree with Megan, the color palette is the best part! What type of wood is it?

Look at this magickal masterpiece! :star_struck: Wow, @Liisa- it came out wonderful! There’s so many interesting aspects- may I ask which crystals you decided to attach? And is that a little bottle I see hanging by the handle? Any idea what you’ll put inside?

Ahhh it’s so exciting to see! Great work and thanks for sharing! :sparkling_heart:
