Aunt Ruby’s Magic Wand

Rubywand1

Rubywand2 I made this magic wand for my
great-Aunt Ruby’s 98th birthday present. She is a magical and delightful lady in every sense of the word…I’m sure she already had a magic wand and just needed an upgrade.

I modified a pattern I saw in Bead and Button magazine for a peyote-stitched starfish.  Tiny wind chimes hang just
below the star, so when you use it, it jingles. The wand itself is a dowel wrapped in ribbon with a peyote-stitched cap on the end.Starfish  At right is my first starfish…also an experiment in using random bead colors.
