The veil separating the world of the living to the dead has parted and the last harvest has ended. I cast my circle and invite into it, my ancestors, and my loved ones who have passed through the veil. Come to me and, together, let us celebrate your time here on Earth.
With Ritual, we pay homage to the women hanged at Proctor’s Ledge in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, as well as speak up for the women that don’t fit into today’s societal norms. Like the ‘witches’ before us, we are unruly. We are nonconforming. Now, we are empowered. We are the granddaughters of the witches you couldn’t burn.
Made of blue Labradorite and seven Rainbow Moonstone, this piece is named for Alice Parker, executed on September 22, 1692. Mary Warren, jailed for witchcraft herself, accused Alice of several acts of witchcraft. She claimed that Alice's specter had brought poppets to her in jail and encouraged her to stick pins in them to torment others, and that Alice had confessed to attending a witches’ “Bloody Sacrament." Alice also suffered from catalepsy, an ailment that caused her to experience sudden unconsciousness. She would be found on the ground, stiff and seemingly dead, only to recover later. In one incident, she was found by neighbors, unconscious in the snow. Due to folklore that claimed that witches could leave their bodies and move about in spirit form, some felt this might be witchcraft.
