It's a wand with a Bowtruckle attached. Sort of a twist on the magical core of wands. I came up with a whole back story for it but people keep saying it's depressing, lol, so I'll leave it off.

I liked your back story. Yes, it has a sad ending, but you already see it on the wand so it is not exactly a surprise. Post it.

technogoddess, i love the snitch necklace! A lot.

I've been wanting to crochet a snitch, but i don't have the right colors. So... i may just make one in whatever colors i want to. Smiley

I LOVE your wand!  so creative!  And please do share the back story.  I find creative writing so much harder then creative crafting!

Shrinky Dinks are a rather hard plastic, once they bake down.  you can make your own with #6 plastic.  Found this link for a tutorial:
http://curbly.com/chrisjob/posts/2252-diy-shrinky-dinks

A word of warning: they become ADDICTIVE!  Grin

Aw, thanks!  Cheesy Okay so the story is, every Bowtruckle has its own tree to look after and their life essence was tied to that one tree. When their tree dies, so do they. One day a little tree was cut down for wand wood because the wizards didn't see the baby bowtruckle asleep in the tree. As the tree died, so too did the bowtruckle but its essence/soul transferred into the twig it was clutching (making it a 'Soul of Bowtruckle, 11 and a half inches, perfect for Slytherins Charms' wand? lol). The wand-maker couldn't bear to part the two and fashioned the wand around creature, and that is how they remain today!

...haha, i had wayyy too much time thinking about this while I was making the wand.

Ooh. Thanks for the link, Shrinky-dinks sound like so much fun... but I don't think I can really afford another craft addiction right now! lol  Cheesy

That is a BEAUTIFUL story!  I don't think it's too sad.  I think it speaks more to the care and love the wand maker has for his craft then anything.

Thank you for sharing!

Aw, thanks!

I've got a new story for the little Grindylow I'm making about how he fought against being captured, and lost a finger in the process...but that's really just because his finger broke off somewhere between going in the oven and coming out.  Cheesy

The wand looks great with all the details in the carving. I think the story enhances the wands appeal.

What a great start to our 2011 craft-along year! that necklace is fab! The wand is perfect! The story is amazing and shows the love and care put into it. Can't wait to see the next one!
My snich craft is going a little slower than I would like it to, but to quote a famous train "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can"

I have a little car with an adorable antenna in the center-back of the roof.  It's screaming for a snitch antenna ball.  Has anyone ever made on?  Thoughts on how to go about it?

ping pong ball would work, and maybe some ribbon? That way the breeze catches it and makes it flutter  Cheesy
