the bared bones (white) Mo-14this is a talisman for stripping back the excess down to the bare bones
bone-white-processI was hoping the wishbone would fit in but it was excess to requirements, am enjoying starting to write out what each of the talismans is invoking, naming the stones, bones, claws, feathers and colours and why they are good for calling in &/or protecting. Defining is giving me a deeper insight into the magic as I don’t really know what they are or what they do ’til they’re done. There’s no plan, each one takes me on a journey of “just going”with the materials as Jude Hill of Spirit Cloth has named the creative process.
