feature of the week: hibernacula

"red houngan talisman"

"With Halloween on the horizon I've been in a voodoo mood and have fashioned a rainbow of these funky voodoo skull talismans. My muse for each of these talismans was a handmade juju skull in one of the five colors most often used in voodoo rituals.

This voodoo witch-doctor's talisman is wreathed in glass beads and shell shingles. It wears a crown of brass filigree ensconcing a fire-hued flower of czech glass. The filigree designs are reminiscent of the 'veves' used in voodoo rituals. A filigree-embellished jasper diamond hangs from its collar. It hangs from a black acrylic / aluminum chain with a brass lobster claw clasp which measures 18 inches in length." ~hibernacula
