NAME:   “Boneweaver”
DATE:    June 2018
CONTENTS:   Bear knuckle bones, black leather, nickel-free brass jump rings
INSPIRATION: My mentor and Reclaiming initiator, Boneweaver. She identifies with (and loves) Bear: who is a courageous being that stands against adversity as a leader. Her service as a deathworker reminds me of the black coil of mortals spun by the Fates: woven, lots drawn and cut for each living creature. I respect her ability to share deep Truth with those who are willing to listen and wanted to commemorate a special occasion with a personalized gift just for her.

DATE:    December 2016
CONTENTS:   Smokey quartz, copper chain, magnetic clasp, embellished gray cats eye pendant
INSPIRATION: The haze of a dark, smokey mirror that allows a curious onlooker to see the future. Smokey quartz rids the seer of negativity while this cats eye pendant teases the eye, inviting one’s psychic abilities out from the deep subconscious.
