And the winner of the Alivan’s wand design contest is…
In early November, we announced an exciting contest where one of our loyal fans would be able to design a custom-made wand for Alivan’s Majestic Wand Collection. This is the very first wand design contest, and the winner will have their design created and sold as a limited edition on the Alivan’s Master Wandmakers website.
We received over 50 submissions, and our friends at Alivan’s narrowed the selection down to three finalists, which you have voted on over the last few days (you can see the three finalists right here). The votes are in, and the winner is:[toggle title=”Adam Gammons” state=”open” ]
Here is Design #1!
- Wood: Maple
- Length: 15 in.
- Width: 13/16 in. at widest point
- Core: Hair of Garden Gnome
- Accents: bands of copper*
“This is a wand for the teacher, for the simple and the warm-hearted, for the good communicator. It finds its home with those who easily form connections with others. Because it is fabricated from willow wood, those who are flexible of mind will find that this wand serves them well. However, those resistant to change will have less success with it in hand.
The deep brown conveys the warmth felt by all those who are loved by the holder of this wand. The sage green accents evoke images of trembling leaves of tall tree in the spring. The copper accents, sunlight filtering lightly through those leaves.
Its core of a single hair plucked from the head of a garden gnome brings it not only a homey simplicity, but a certain practicality as well.
Finally, the design is uncomplicated, yet elegant and classic. Gentle sloping lines and pleasing curves show that those capable of wielding this particular wand are personable, warm, and always willing to pass on everything they know to anyone equally willing to listen.”
This contestant also created a design page for their wand, which you can view here![/toggle]
Created by Adam Gammons, this wand will now be featured on the Alivan’s website and available for sale in the very near future. Adam will be sent the very first wand of this design as a special prize. CONGRATULATIONS, ADAM!
