more wands

I finished these two wands, the larger one took about 8 hours from start to finish. that one has a very pretty rutile quartz point. the rutile is a gorgeous golden. this one is my "harvest goddess" wand. i really am in the autumn mood, my colors are really reflecting it. there is the little goddess bead and then some leaves and flowers, in the dangles.

I have always collected boxes. I love that they are capable of holding precious things. I made these ( just painted and decorated) to hold and carry my crafts to and from the Fall Festival. I am also in the process of putting together a special box, one that will hold sacred things ( at least sacred to me). Some of the contents will be gathered things and others will be things I have made. I am enjoying this project! (will post a pic when completed)
