Magic wand for swap

This is the full view of a magic wand I made for a 14 secrets swap. I loved this swap. It took me awhile to find the piece of wood. I went to the forest and parks, but found wood that was too old. Then, one day while out walking I came across a house. In front of it lay freshly cut branches from a fall trim for trash pick up, and I found a couple branches I liked. The trick was in making the wand simple enough. I took my first version apart, but am happy with this one. I don't know if you can see, but I randomly stamped spirals all over the body of the stick after having wiped it with walnut ink. The tip is a moonstone, which I chose for enhanced intuitive energy. A close up of the handle and tip follow.
