Hi, all. I'm pretty new, both here and in terms of wandcraft, so I was hoping I might be able to get some suggestions.
I have a hazel wand I am making for my ritual partner, and I'm planning on using a bloodstone as a bottom stone and red jasper as a top stone. The trouble is, while I'm decent at working with the wood, I'm having trouble figuring out how to cleanly attach the stones. I've including a picture of the only other wand I've made that incorporated a crystal, so anyone who is curious can see how I've done it.
I'd appreciate any feedback anyone has to offer!
