Iron Wand with Lapis Lazuli Hand Forged
Our gorgeous Iron Wands are hand forged at Artes And Craft!
This one is 13 inches with a twist and set with a crystal in the handle. Detailed to bring out the contrast between the polished areas and the parts we leave black from the forge! Beautiful and powerful.
It took a while to figure out how to do this... 1800 degree iron, blacksmiths hammers and crystals are natural enemies... Either the hammers would shatter the crystal or the extreme heat would cause them to shatter... So it took some trial and error to figure out how to work quickly yet gently with small detailing hammers to get the crystal set in one piece. Its hard also setting the crystal with big thick leather blacksmiths gloves... So I have to use my fingers... And have the burns to prove it!
Legend has it that the first blacksmith was Tubal Cain, 7th son of Cain, the bad apple son of Adam and Eve from the hebrew Torah... After the fall, Yahweh ordered man to toil the earth by hand, but Tubal Cain had other ideas and soon mankind had tools of iron and there was no more toiling by hand. Iron is therefore a manifestation of our free will and apostasy.
