amulet





wood, hand carved, total length 2" or 5cm



I decided to play with my pocket knife today...


This is a Mano Fica... it's a very obscene gesture in Italy... It is supposed to ward off the evil eye...


Of course it will end up on my "voodoo" necklace aka the monster necklace...

I love the contrast between metal and wood.

mentally, you do not expect something so dainty and fine to be obscene... quite the contrast!

Carver too? It's wonderful and eerie and perfect for your necklace:)

Pocket knife? I thought I was just about the only woman on earth who carries a pocket knife. This is wonderful news - we do have a few strange things in common, eh? I love the amulet!
