Finally got around to finishing my wand. I've got a gem/rock/stone that I've had since I was about 2 at the tip. All pure copper, only metal that magic flows through well. The feather towards the bottom just kinda showed up one day, so I'll leave it till it decides it's time to fly away. I'm extremely pleased with it. Haven't exactly used it yet because it isn't in tune with me and only me yet.... a couple more nights with it under my pillow. Hope you guys like.
