I added half a teaspon of anise seeds because, I'm not sure why; the scent and color seems right and a quick search for magic uses turns up Lucky Mojo saying they have hoodoo value for psychic powers. Besides that, they sweeten the breath. So this reliquary bottle has become a mojo bottle. The chain is spliced together salvage, the hook I fabricated myself, and the fob on the hook is a Kaiser Wilhelm birthday commemorative coin and a Victorian cameo button jumped together, suspending a green freshwater pearl. One thing that tickles me about using old text is the way lines of text taken out of the page can generate poetical considerations, as your brain attempts to deal with fragments, helplessly assigning some meaning. In this case, the text is from an antique book of the essays, poetry and hymns of Cowper, an index page. It generated the title of the piece; but wait, there's more, if you read the back of the bottle. "Love of the voice of the fat oyster," how marvelous. Soon to be listed in my Etsy shop.
