Being a wand maker and having a sense of humor once in a while someone will say something that plants an idea into my head. Friends were talking about Voodoo (just a topic that came up) and one of them asked about Voodoo Wands; after some exhaustive research I finally came to the conclusion that wands are not really used in Voodoo Ceremonies. That’s when my sense of humor took over and I decided if there were no Voodoo Wands to be found, perhaps it was time I came up with one. After what seemed like a forever search for a couple of components I thought might fit the bill, i.e. the chicken leg, and carved wood skull, and by adding a piece of grape vine I had, low and behold was born my version of a, “Voodoo Wand”. The whole project was just a lark to have some fun; I even posted it on Etsy to see what would happen. Well so far no sale, but a load of comments. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing, or bad thing, but it was a fun project, and who knows; perhaps it’ll go viral.
