    This speaks to me so strongly of someone who knows that the sacred ordinaries of the world are in fact quite extraordinary. I love how Saskia has incorporated so much in her talisman for she sees the wonder in our daily world and knows the power of elemental magic. In her gifted hands, seed promises growth, bone holds eternity, turquoise as Mo has said, heals, metal provides strength, eco dyed cloth wraps reverence around us and the feather makes our spirits soar- all of these manifest Love and this talisman is truly a gift for our world.

      (((Marti))) Saskia’s talisman holds such good earthy magic, turquoise is my favourite stone, it feels like holding a piece of the sky & if you look closely at the yellow envelope Saskia writes that the turquoise is for healing, it’s also a wayfinder, good for travellers, one of my all time favourite books is “The Anthropology of Turquoise” by Ellen Melloy, a deeply spiritwise, funny & very earthy read.

      (((Dee))) I love how Saskia pares her work back to the finest essence, getting to the heart of the matter & the way her sense of line and colour are so grounded in the spirit of her watery land.

    oh the aching beauty of that fabric with the feather…

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Fiona))) I love how Saskia’s work is so strong and sturdily constructed combining such delicate materials with great skill reflecting her spirits of place and deep love for our beautiful broken world

    Such a tiny pennant, singing out its presence like a wren …
