The Warrior

Ingredients :

A wooden and wax amulet I made, a German silver focal I forged, an old Chinese coin (Song dynasty 960-1279), amber (Baltic and Mexican), various bone beads and pendants (one coffin charm from Gayle, thank you!), another wooden amulet I made, leather, a wolf tooth, a black bear molar, a deer tooth, a crystal point from Arkansas (thank you 
Jay and Bobbi!) in a bullet case from Tennessee (thank you Sherry!), ostrich egg shell discs, horse hair, shell, one ceramic pendant I made, ceramic beads from Greece (thank you alek from infinity stop), an Arabic coin, horn, glass, obsidian, jasper, wood, a Celtic money bronze ring, brass chain, copper, a sealed leather pouch filled with lavender...

I almost kept it for me... but already have three monsters of my own... and only one neck...
But I had a lot of fun making it, hunting beads in my drawers and boxes... finding some I forgot about...and I love making those tiny sealed leather pouches... some more to come I think...

Powerful! This monster has so many interesting and gorgeous things on it. The builtin power of friendship? Love the leather pouches of medicinal herbs.

Wow, Steph. Look at all of that! All of those amulets have your energy imbued in them now.
A truly special piece. It speaks abundance.
Nice work.

these are great steph, all this explosion of work, and i agree making sealed pouches is great fun, its cool sewing something inside them too, something that has a meaning
