Chippy Ombre Blues~Wand~Staff~Iridescent Marbles~twisted vine-branch, Fifth Chakra
This incredible wand was formed naturally by a particularly robust Bittersweet Vine that had climbed upon and curled itself around a branch of Flowering Black Locust Tree (Robinia pseudoacacia). The vine continued reaching out for other trees to climb but I intercepted, gently turning the vine back upon itself where it continued to grow, wrapping around the branch several times. Finally cut, it measures 45" end-to-end as shown. Finished with several coats of distressed chalk paint in Blue Ombre hues make it easier to handle and may "speak" to the fifth* Chakra of creativity and expression.
Embellished only with 3 different iridescent blue marble shapes,chosen because they exactly nested in the end loops, were affixed with epoxy. Feel free to further embellish it with leather, colored embroidery threads, beads, charms, feathers, etc!
Its easy to handle, believed by some that when held in the hand of one who FITS it's particular shape, this wand will feel like it was created just for them.
Natural spacing does exist for the creation of TWO shorter length wands, if desired!
Dried for two years in it's natural form, all thorns have all been trimmed short and heat treated to eliminate any possible "hitch-hikers" before painting.
No returns. Please re-sell or re-home if it's not for you.
Contact me if this sparks ideas that we might nurture together if you are not a DIY!
I would love to hear your thoughts!
