Picked up this project from a long time fan of my work. He wanted to surprise his sister (a Harry Potter fan) with a wand for Christmas. After a great description of her and her likes/dislikes I fell in love with making her a custom wand.. and by sheer luck chose her favorite flower… a tulip. Leaves and carved into an ergonomic handle (once an Industrial Designer… always an Industrial Designer.)
Yellow Heart Tulip, Shedua wand and leaves. 7 hours work total.
She loved it so much the client paid me 3 times the price I invoiced him… and sent me a photo documentation of her opening the gift. Success I’d say!!
