“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.

“My Scrying Eye”

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. Scrying is an ancient divination practice of witches: this necklace was created with the intention of allowing the wearer to invoke their own intuitive abilities so that they may See what Is.
