“Hand Of Glory” - Protective Amulet
Traditionally, a Hand Of Glory is made from the mummified hand of a person hanged for murder. By burning a candle in it, sometimes made from the fat of the corpse, it is used by thieves to give light to only the holder while rendering the occupants of a house in comatose-like sleep. Le Petit Albert, a grimoire circa 1702, has much to say on the matter, however our take on this unique and grisly amulet is a little more practically crafted.
Nothing says “Mind your own damn business!” like a cauterised severed hand draped at your side. An evil eye adorns the backside of the middle finger, as though onlookers needed more incentive for repulsion. The wielder of this amulet knows what they’re about and has no qualms about commanding their environment accordingly. Charged red sealing wax binds a candle stub to the centre of the palm, symbolising the beacon of the user’s intentions and channelling clarity through psychic turmoil. The charring on the piece represents the fate of those who would mean harm or ill intent to the user. Great lengths of copper chain bind the piece, as our consequence is bound to our actions, and does not shy from enforcing such. This is not a piece to be underestimated.
This transformative wonder can be worn as a necklace or around the hips/waist as a belted accessory. Optional extension chain adjusts the piece for a larger fit, or the extension alone can be worn as a matching anklet.
*Disclaimer: This item is not meant to be actually lit. Please do not set fire to it in any way as it will destroy the piece. We are not responsible for you destroying it by lighting the candle stub or any other part of it.*

***Our 2021 travel season officially begins April 17th***
We travel around the continental US during the warmer months in order to collect the ingredients required for our craft. We strive to ensure our creations and products are as sustainably sourced and authentic as possible.
All of that aside, the pack also just enjoys roaming in general.
Due to spotty cell signal during Travel Season our email/messaging reply days will be limited to Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only. The exceptions to this will be any readings or scheduled consultations confirmed in advance.
It's incredibly difficult to get wifi in the middle of nowhere, so we *try* to be closer to civilisation on a regular basis to offset some of our unconventional nature of work.
Unfortunately we have no control over the shipping speed of international orders, especially during this pandemic era when various countries have different customs requirements for postage.
During our Travel Season, designated mail drop-offs to the post office will be limited to Fridays and Saturdays only. Therefore, if you place your order on a Monday, your shipment will go out that Friday or Saturday at the very soonest.
