* The wand in the photos of this listing is the exact wand you'd receive.

* Every wand comes with a certificate of authenticity card included.

* The wood for my wands is respectfully sourced: I only use branches I find that e.g. the wind has brought down, or that come from general garden maintenance, or similar. Because I only use solid branches and twigs for the wands, no two wands can ever be the same.

* NOTE: Countries like Australia and New Zealand operate strict import restrictions on wood and other natural items. Parcels to these countries are more likely to get stuck in customs and incur additional charges payable by the customer/recipient.

The diameter of the wands are measured at the tip and the very bottom of the handle. Approximate diameter measures in inches:
5 mm = 3/16"
10 mm = 6/16"
15 mm = 9/16"
20 mm = 3/4"
25 mm = 1"
Use a clear oil suitable for wood, beeswax or furniture wax.

The wood might change in colour as it ages. This is a natural process.

Bark handles with natural green details will fade in time when handled (this might not be the case with ones that have been lacquered) or if exposed to sunlight.
Ask before ordering. I will add complimentary "Signed for" for UK orders when buying two or more wands, and complimentary "International Tracked & Signed" for international orders when buying three or more.
Oiled wands can be burned with e.g. a name or a symbol, and/or they can be lacquered and/or have woodstain put on them. Just let me know when ordering. Please note that customisations might delay shipping with up to two working days.

I do NOT offer replicas of Pottermore or official Harry Potter wands.
Yes, as long as beeswax isn't specifically listed as a finish.
Every listing shows you the very wand you'd be getting, as they're all of different sizes even if they're of the same wood type or have the same kind of decoration. Every twig is unique.
