Commission to create staff, wand and swords

A person interested in Ancient Medicine asked me if I could make tools for her based on the times of Solomon.
She was studying the book “Solomon’s Key” to find a link between ancient and modern medicine and was convinced Witches, Sorcoreers were the doctors of those days. She had branches of an unfruited Almond Tree (the unfruited was important), we debarked them and then wrapped in silk until the project was complete. I carved the head for the Staff and one wand from 120 year old Oregan and the Swords
and Caduceus are from Huon Pine. Placing the crystals and burning the symbols were involved.

The tools were varnished by the owner, I thought she should have added some colour or variety of varnishes.

This was a fun project that paid well.

That is a pretty cool idea and to get paid at the same time :)

Definitely looks like a rewarding project. I’m sure this will be on the kids wish list for Christmas. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, after she varnished and polished the tools she took them to a meeting and had them consecrated (I think that is the word) and has used them in her research. All the symbols were correct and she has had positive results. I have had massages from her using the wands as a guide to problem points and certainly
worked for me. I am still not a believer in this craft but ….........

That is interesting. I never would have believed in witching to find buried power and water lines until the fellow who taught me handed me the copper wire and told me to try it for myself. He sure wasn’t controlling tht wire in my hands!

More Ancient Doctoring than witching, she is following the same procedures as used before Solomons’ times
and ancient Chinese accupunture where the healing is all done by touching the nerve system. Have got interested in helping her solve these mysteries and she does practise on my body. I have never felt so good.
I have always wondered about the devines for water with wire but after seeing a couple of old guys finding under ground water convinced me. I thinks some are genuine and there is always the one that will try and con people.
