Announcement    I weave my lavender into Victorian lavender filled wands using 30 colors of ribbon for 5 sizes. The lavender crop was exceptional for the summer of 2019 and I used over 45,000 stems of fresh lavender to make handcrafted aromatics I create from plants grown here at Pedricks.
Some of these I use to make one of a kind pendants, brooches, bookmarks, and more.
So you can take the wonderful aroma of real lavender with you where ever you go.

It is now spring of 2020 and a new crop of lavender will be ready to make into wands by mid June. And it will again be possible to fill orders of all one color as fresh lavender with pliable stems will be plentiful. Listings for advance orders of one color in large sets will go up in May. These advance orders are filled in the order they are received and the availability of the length of stems needed for the size chosen. The shorter stems bloom before the longer ones.

I would be happy to send your gift to the recipient with a note from you!

Only summer blooming long stemmed English lavender, can be used to make lavender wands during a short 2-3 month period of time each year. Too soon and the flowers are too moist, too late and the stems will break instead of bend. Orders for large numbers of one color for events taking place prior to summer, or after summer, need to be placed either while the wands can be made or before the June to August season. I sure wish I could make them year round!!
The wands themselves last for many years. I have seen photos of a wand over 40 years old with the caption that it still smelled wonderful!

I am happy to fill wholesale orders and I have a Wholesale category in my shop. I am also happy to create custom "Reserved for..." listing for combinations of sizes and forms. Please write me to find out what sizes and colors I currently have on hand.

Have you ever smelled Lemon Verbena? Someone said it smells like lemon-aid. Like sweet lemons. I grow Lemon Verbena and make it into sachets. I have even begun to start making it into Lemon Verbena wands. Lavender sachets are in abundance, so I hope you will consider trying something different!

Thank-you!

Pedricks - The Present and The Potential Future

Pedricks began when I discovered I could weave my long stemmed English lavender into wands instead of just harvesting the flowers and drying them for sachets.
Lavender falls off of it's stems when they begin to get dry and the ladies of the Victorian age created this unique means of preserving the lavender from their gardens so it could be used for many years to scent their clothing or any room they were in.
I have seen a photo of a lavender wand that was 40 years old, with the caption that it still smelled wonderful.
Since only long stemmed English lavender can be used to make these wands, I cannot begin making them until each summers crop is mature enough, and then I have to stop once the stems are no longer supple enough to bend and the flowers begin to fall off of the stems when they are cut.

In the future, I hope to be able to spend more time drawing, painting, and creating ceramics. I love ceramics and have been able to create enough to start a new store here on Etsy called CatDancingArtStudio!

I hope you will take a moment to visit it!

I will also be adding some new creations from my garden. Have you ever smelled Lemon Verbena? Someone described it as smelling like Lemonade, and it does! And I have begun making them into sachets. Lavender sachets are abundant, no one else make Lemon Verbena sachets. I also grow a variety of perennial flowers and will be adding them over time. For now, I have the Queens Tears shoot, but soon there will be much more.
Check back once in a while to see what else might be new here!

    I have always loved working with my hands to create. From drawing and painting, to knitting and embroidery. When I first began to weave my lavender into wands in the Victorian way, it was as if my hands already knew how to do this. It is a joy!
