My Inner Papoose

The chocolate mold (positive part) now set as a pendant in a short necklace of hazelnut twigs, unakite, and antique carved wooden rosary bead with a handmade hook and eye catch, strung on knotted silk.  The hazelnut twigs are traditionally used by First Nations people for healing purposes, and they have been found to have antioxidant properties; the similar use of copper is well known, so I think of this little necklace as a talisman for healing.  The papoose looks a little like a chrysalis, too, and I find her irresistable, myself!  Even if you don't go for the healing theme, the colors are gentle and earthy, which makes it good for autumn.
