**How to choose your Own Wand**
We have put together a list of Woods and their Magical Properties which may aid you in the choice of your Wand. There are many different qualities to each wood, which can vary greatly depending upon the path the wand took during its growth, and how it has been effected by the Elements. Sometimes the wands 'Aura' will be completely opposite to the woods properties, due to this we always feel that the Wand that you are 'Drawn' to is Destined for you no matter what its Original Properties may be.
**Commissions are always welcome. Please contact us if you have a particular wand is mind. Commissions take between 1 and 4 weeks depending on item required**
