    Beautiful Mo, looks like it would be lovely to wear. ox

  3. Impressive and a bit daunting. Seems it might protect one from almost anything. Black is such a strong color. It must smell wonderful.

  4. Strength beauty scent – see smell feel surround protection

    What a magical and wide-ranging gift you received from Kathy, and what wonderful things you have made with it! This talisman is very powerful. I love the black beads in the strap…they remind me of a rosary.

  6. Yes I am totally with you on that – I think of each French knot in my work as a thought or ‘prayer’ – I also love the way they feel between the fingers which seems to connect with that idea…

    and this via Whiskey River
    “Then I felt too that I might take this opportunity to tie up a few loose ends, only of course loose ends can never be properly tied, one is always producing new ones. Time, like the sea, unties all knots. Judgments on people are never final, they emerge from summings up which at once suggest the need of a reconsideration. Human arrangements are nothing but loose ends and hazy reckoning, whatever art may otherwise pretend in order to console us.”
    – Iris Murdoch

    Wouldn’t it be grand to be watched over by this piece? & to feel the energy in each of those knots in the cord…would love to run my fingers over those.

    oooh, what lovely wise words!! Oh how I envy those with the ability to to write so well. At least I can get to read them!! ox

  11. I’m loving this series of crow talismans, Mo – they’re all fabulous! I really like the lampwork feathers on this one!
