About the Artist
Hello there, Enchanted Souls! I'm Jeannie Seidel, the Artist behind Queen of Wands Enchanted Gifts in Philadelphia. I design and create whimsical handmade & customized magic wands.
50% of each custom wand is fabricated from reclaimed materials like belt buckles, finials, vintage jewelry, and antique industrial bobbins from 1930s/ 40s textile mills. A select few of my wands have crystals or charms from cities like New Orleans, Philadelphia and Tokyo attached to the design, and of course,
I infuse each one with positive, uplifting energy!
My Wand Gallery is named for the Queen of Wands Tarot card, which symbolizes an upbeat, courageous & determined energy. This card means you are here to see through your creative visions and life purpose, even in the face of adversity & challenge.
I define myself as an Assemblage Artist / Maker / Experimenter / Creative Quirky Queen with an incurable curiosity. I find my inspiration within the realms of magic, supernatural beings & mystical energy.
That invisible energy you sense, or that gut feeling that led you in the right direction, or the “sign” you received from a loved one who has passed…these kinds of mysterious and unexplained “coincidences” of life are the inspirations for the whimsical items I create.
My art is a physical manifestation of those magical miracles. Every time I create a new wand, I set the intention to “wake up” the magic in that person’s life and to bring uplifting energy to whomever claims it as their own.

"Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in Magic will never find it."
The purpose of my artistic expression is to bring the creative, magical realm into our daily humdrum routines.
Our everyday lives can get so caught up with the mundane that we may not stop to take a breath and enjoy the magic happening right in front of us.
Like the magic of a dragon fly that lands on your window and engages your sense of wonder, or a technicolor sunset on your drive home. Life is FULL of magical experiences if we just stop and take a look.
