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 Smoky Quartz, Labradorite, and Citrine, this piece is named for Ann Pudeater, executed on September 22, 1692. After accusations by Mary Warren and several others, Ann was arrested and charged with forcing Mary to sign the Devil’s book, possession of witchcraft objects, and using witchcraft to cause the death of her second husband’s wife, whom she had been nursing, and then the death of her second husband himself. She was indicted on September 7 and on September 9, she was tried, convicted, and sentenced to hang.
(3.5” tall. Hanging from black, braided yarn, the weight of this piece is cushioned and comfortable. The length is adjustable and can be tied off with a bow or loose double knot. )
