NEW COLLECTION! Ice Age fossils direct from Florida are the inspiration for a new series of amulets handmade by me, Susan Tooker of Spinning Castle. The fossils serve as the inspiration for a talisman that I combine with other gemstones and rare beads. Each amulet is truly one-of-a-kind because each these fossils date from the last Ice Age and are over 10,000 years old! The color, texture and history of the fossils is fascinating!
HERNE THE HUNTER is a tribal amulet that features a stunning Pleistocene Era White Tail Deer jaw bone fossil with teeth. The fossil specimen was discovered in the Alachua Formation in the Santa Fe River, Florida and is approximately 1 million years old! Charm dangles of Quartz Crystal points hang below the fossil bone suspended from a black patina chain . My concept was to create ornately beaded necklaces that recall more ancient times where gemstones were worn as amulets of protection, strength and power. HERNE THE HUNTER showcases the wire wrapped fossil specimen with Ostrich shell beads, rough Quartz beads, copper spacers and purple recycled glass beads from Africa. The necklace is super long with brown leather ties that are wrapped around twisted fancy rings and can be worn down the back or in the front. HERNE THE HUNTER can be worn as a choker or lower on the chest. The necklace features dark oxidized copper wire and findings. HERNE THE HUNTER feels substantial and is reflective of Warrior Spirit!
Leather ties measure 23 inches long.
QUARTZ CRYSTAL is known as the "master healer" and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz (Crystal Quartz, Rock Crystal) harmonizes all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.
DEER TOTEM- Deer is a keen observer, enabled to see well in low lighting and its sensitive hearing allows it to perceive a twig snap in the distance. The graceful movement and gentle nature of these creatures show us the innocence of nature. Deer is a messenger of serenity, can see between shadows and hear what isn't being said. Deer teaches us to maintain our innocence and gentleness so we can share our open-heartedness with others.
