Wendy, of Bliss Angels, hosted a Spring Wand Swap that provided a bit of spring fun and magic for all of us lucky fairy girls. After receiving our fairy names (you can find your own at The Original Fairy Name Generator site) the wand making commenced.
My fairy friend was Gossamer Corndancer, aka, Amy of
Ruby Moon Art.
Isn't this a wonderful piece of creative whimsy? A wooden spoon all decked out in buttons, satin ribbons, ruffled crepe, lace and a sprinkle of glitter.
I, Bindweed Rainbowfilter, in turn wanted to make a wand fit for a Spring Fairy Queen.
Using a chopstick that I gold-leafed, I attached some white feathered wings and an embellished frozen charlotte wearing a jeweled crown. Hanging as the backdrop was shabby, sheer ribbon adorned with topaz crystals and strands of chunky gold stones. The wand top was finished with a transparent berry bead and pearl stickpin.
Thanks Wendy, or should I say Petal Elfweb, for a magical and most unique swap experience!
