Spiraled Spalting Wand

Here’s another experimental and single piece wand where the blade and haft are a solid piece of wood. I wanted to keep practicing my modest wood carving abilities with this one. There’s some light carving on the base of the haft and a spiral running the length of the blade and wound with copper wire. The haft also has a wrapping of waxed hemp under black rawhide. The roughly 12” long wand of spalting wood also has a coating of boiled linseed oil for preservation.

Just A Little Somethin’ For My Grandma

Like the title suggests, I made this for my Grandmother. It was her birthday last month and so I decided to make her a necklace featuring her favorite colors and her birthstone, amethyst. She loves her jewelry with big fixtures and bold colors.
