Good news for all you wand-wielding witches and wizards out there - our popular magic wands are currently in stock.
These distinctive wands are hand-crafted by Albertan wand-maker Darlene Musser from sturdy pewter, and are embedded with gemstones carefully selected for their spiritual properties.
We wrote a little about the history and purpose of magic wands in a previous blog post - Wondering About Wands? In this, we talked about how to choose the right wand for your practice and how they might be used.
One of the most distinctive features of Darlene's wands are the gemstones that feature in the handles and points. Crystals and gemstones are widely known for their magical properties, whether healing, protective, psychic, creative or otherwise. The inclusion of gemstones in these wands amplifies their energy, and also helps to focus their purpose.

The grounding stone of this wand is a gorgeous green jade, which is known for restoring the balance in the reproductive and fertility cycle for both women and men.The tiger's eye in the wand's point is also known for stimulating fertility and attracting positive energy into the home. 'Fertility' can be related to the physical body, or it might be interpreted in a more abstract sense, in terms of creativity, wealth or vitality.
The design of this wand is suited to big life changes and powerful creation, particularly within your own mind and spirit.
