After a loooong time I actually came back to this project and finished a couple of the wands. Plus I came up with a name and designed the labels.

Needed something that feels traditional, so I used an old family name from my mothers side of the family. Allingham Original Wandmakers.

Loving the new logo, especially the swish and flick bit, nice touch. :D

And the wands look brilliant.
