Time for an Art Jewelry Elements COM reveal! Here were some amulet vessels that Jenny Davies-Reazor made. I saw them at Beadfest and knew I had to play along. I said go big or go home and got the biggest one here.
Here are some amulet vessels I found pictures of...
This next one was to hold liquid... Poison perhaps?
Well I needed to fill my vessel first with amulety type things... I looked up and found that amulets are to ward off bad things and talismans are to bring good luck. So, cloves it is. They are worn to ward away evil spirits plus they smell good!
I used evil eye manik-manik beads from Indonesia ( the colors were perfect! ) some leather and wood plus sari silk to finish it off.
Then I had to seal my vessel so the stuff inside didn't fall out! So, I wire wrapped in a way that mimics the bottom of the vessel.
Thanks to the AJE team and all the guests that played along!
Take a look at everyone's blog and comment!
