These capped crystals are a perfect expression of the vision and intentions I have set for my Talismans.  Even better I am finding them enormously comforting.   I am very careful selecting crystals from my vendors ... when choosing crystals, first I look around and see where my gaze lands.  Then I hover my hand back and forth over the stones until I feel a tingling in my hand, using my intuition and staying hyper aware of ones that I am drawn to pick up, ones that "feel" good in my hand and held to my heart.  In this way, each crystal chosen, maybe not always the most pristine specimens, but always the ones that call to my heart.  I am not anywhere close to being an expert in the properties associated with crystals, but lately I have found great inspiration and insight in Crystal Muse, by Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro.

I cap the crystals with fine silver that is ruggedly textured with treasures collected from the desert, the sea and the deep forest ...  along with symbols such as spirals, hearts and arrows and lotus flowers.

Sometimes I feel like Spirit takes hold of my hands when I'm designing jewelry.  I very much felt that way as this glorious Angel Phantom Quartz Magpie Talisman was coming together.  I just kept pulling out gemstones and elements, assembling, taking apart and reassembling until I arrived at this over the top collection of gems and symbols.  I was kind of stunned and virtually breathless when it was completed. 

The blessing for this very much spirit guided Amphibole Magpie Talisman ... "Divine guidance is always available and flows through me" ...  just had to be and is written on an indigo dyed swatch of Lithuanian linen, wrapped with indigo dyed waxed linen, tucked within, a mustard seed for faith and a fenugreek seed to honor my grandfather, a deeply spiritual and highly inspirational figure in my life.
