I'm interested in seeing what materials people are using to make wands. The first wands I ever saw in person were in one of the local meta shops, and they were made of glass and quartz. I have an eternal fascination with all things that catch and hold light, and I was utterly enthralled by those wands. Unfortunately, I was a broke student and couldn't afford to buy any of them. Darn!
But the memory stuck with me for years.
Fast-forward a couple of decades. In the intervening years, I had studied crystal healing methods and had cobbled together a modest collection. Then came the day I took up wire-wrapping. My mind went right back to those glass-and-quartz wands I had loved so much. I bought the components I needed and experimented until I determined how to wire-wrap the kind of wand I'd wanted all that time. (The original ones I saw appeared to be soldered, not wire-wrapped, but I'm not playing with fire anytime soon, lol.
I did see someone who mentioned stained glass as one of their wand components. But so far, I haven't seen glass mentioned besides that. Leave it to me to gravitate toward materials that are somewhat off the beaten path, lol. But glass transmits light and energy so nicely. As people continue to acclimate to the idea of fiber-optic data transmission, which can use cables with extruded glass at their core, I wonder if it will become easier for people who favor metaphysics to envision the transmitting abilities of glass more readily. At that point, maybe we'll start seeing it make an appearance in more wands.
