Bespoke makers of fine magic wands and fantasy novels


BARDWOOD is the wand workshop of Dr. Alferian Gwydion MacLir, Druid Companion O.B.O.D and wandmaker for over twenty years. We specialize in creating bespoke magic wands to your specifications and preferences with many options to consider.  Our pages on wand lore will tell you about types of wood: Birch, Oak, Ash, Holly, Beech, Yew. Each tree has a different sort of spirit particularly good for particular types of magical work. Consider whether you would like a  symbolic carved reservoir such as an acorn, stupa, or beehive; or if your witchcraft or spell-casting would like a reservoir stone, adding the particular magical properties of quartz, malachite, or hematite perhaps?  A crystal point of various sorts is also a possibility, as well as an enchanted core of a spirit animal suited to you and your magic.
