Violetta Beauvais was an American witch.[2] She, along with Shikoba Wolfe, Thiago Quintana, and Johannes Jonker, was one of four wandmakers who served North America in the early 20th century.[2]

Beauvais was born in New Orleans, Louisiana.[2] All of the wands she produced were made from swamp mayhaw wood.[2] For many years, she kept the core she used in her wands a closely-guarded secret, but it was eventually discovered to be rougarou hair.[2] Beauvais's wands were often accused of having a natural affinity for Dark magic.[2] However, many great American wizards of the 1920s used Beauvais-made wands, including President Seraphina Picquery.[2]
