Really pleased with how this custom order turned out -- wand and hair chopsticks made to match a dress for a costume!

Came up with a simple wand holder design (belt loop on the back) in a leather-look fabric. Now added to the shop! Only £2, keeping it simple and cheap. :)

A magic wand factory on my desk as I am working on 7 orders (2 through Etsy). Trying out some new techniques & having fun. Hopefully the people who are getting a little magic for Christmas will enjoy them as much as I am enjoying making them.

About

It's all about the random...

I'm an author. A writer. A creator. I'm also the mother of a son who loves to read, but who also spends a great deal of time on electronic gadgets (apple, tree, all of that). When Max started reading Harry Potter, he asked me to make him a wand. I happily obliged because anything that brings him to the written page is a good thing. I also love to make things anyway, so I considered it a win-win situation.

But the thing is, I really enjoyed making them. And Max kept asking for more. And people who saw them asked if I was going to sell them. So I thought, "why, yes, I'd love to make more and have an excuse for the boxes of paint and craft supplies I have on hand" and here I am.

Each item in this shop is handmade by me and field tested for swishiness by my son. Periodically he decides he needs to keep one, and those will not make it to the shop. Sorry. But feel free to contact me if you've got a custom wand growing in your mind that you'd like to see born into reality.

Because that's the thing I do...take things from the mind's eye and bring them to life. Art is art is art, whether in writing or painting or crafting.

Welcome! I'm a dabbler in words by trade (primarily YA novels) but when my son became obsessed with Harry Potter, I began making him some wands. Other people seemed interested in the magic and here I am. Each wand is unique and completely handmade (and generally unplanned). I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy making them.

Shipping
Items mailed within the UK will go out via Royal Mail. I will also ship internationally. Wands are mailed in a postal tube and hair accessories in a well-padded envelope. Steampunk guns in whatever packaging necessary.

Please note that Royal Mail states that packages shipped to the US will arrive within 5 to 7 business days. However, through personal experience that range seems to go from 3 days to 2 weeks. Please order well in advance of any convention dates to be on the safe side! I am now offering tracking (sadly, it costs about another £4).
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me if an item is damaged in transit and we will work out a solution or replacement.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are interested in a custom order, please contact me. While I have no desire to produce direct copies of any particular wand (such as one from Harry Potter), I am more than happy to create something just for you that will be completely unique.

All items are handmade and hand painted. I use (among other things) Citadel paints, beads, sequins, hot glue, and chopsticks and finish it all off with a non-toxic sealant.
