From Mother Eagle’s Graveyard, Midwinter ’12 Collection.
...The second of three magickal skulls in Mother Eagle's possession, this one will solve any problem asked of it when presented with Belladonna steeped in boiling goats milk on New Year's Eve...
This is a hand-embroidered Human Skull in profile set into a custom made circular birch wood pendant. The skull is stitched in 100% cotton threads and is worked on to fine vintage cotton, which has been lightly dyed using organic tea, giving a lovely antiqued mottle. The fabric around the edges of the skull have also been shaded with watercolour to provide contrast and depth.

This design has been worked in split stitch, the curves of the thread following the contours of the skull, and outlined in fine back stitch. It is mounted into a beautiful circular pendant which has been custom made to my specifications. It completely encloses the embroidery, in sturdy but light-weight and sustainably sourced birch wood.
The wood has been treated in a non-toxic natural wax by my own hand, and is decorated with burnt dots. It measures 48mm (plus 15mm for the tab and bail) in diameter and is 5mm thick. It hangs on an extra-long 36” antique brass finished copper chain. This chain is of the highest quality - every single link of this chain has been soldered. This, along with the bail and lobster clasp, are lead and nickel free, and chosen to provide you with a lifetime’s wear.
