Elizabeth Howe

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 Quartz, Smoky Quartz, and Amethyst, this piece is named for Elizabeth Howe, executed on July 19, 1692. In 1682, Elizabeth was accused of bewitching a 10-year-old girl. The girl suffered for a few years before she died and, although Elizabeth was named as a witch, she was never arrested or brought up on charges. Ten years later, she was accused of witchcraft by the "Salem girls." She was arrested and when her trial began on June 29th, a number of her neighbors and old rivals showed up to give testimony against her. After all of the evidence was heard, Elizabeth was found guilty and sentenced to death.

(2.4” tall, 16” dark copper chain.)
