Each wand made at Bardwood is lovingly hand-carved, stained, finished, and enchanted with a magical core. Some are augmented with magical stones, crystals and other design elements intended to enhance the power of the wand. All are made from the carefully selected wood of sacred trees according to the methods of Druid tradition and Elvish lore
These wands are not toys or props but are made for the serious magical practitioner, whether druid, witch, or wizard. A wand is a magical tool and as such must be charged and invested with intention by its user. Real magic is very subtle and always in accord with Nature's laws. Bardwood is dedicated to working with the dryad spirits of the trees in the art of crafting magic wands. Because of this, we use hand tools; the use of electrical machines is kept to a minimum and nothing is mass-produced. Each magic wand from Bardwood Wandry is unique.
