Aunt Ruby’s Magic Wand

Beaded Magic Wand

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. (At left is my first starfish…also an experiment in using random bead colors.) I hung tiny wind chimes 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.
