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 Amethyst druzy, high quality Labradorite, Rainbow Moonstone, and Amethyst, this piece is named for Mary Parker, executed on September 22, 1692. Very few court documents about Mary’s trial currently exist, if they ever did at all. It is unclear why Mary was targeted, though it is known that she was a mother, a widow, and a respected member of her community. Mary was accused when a 15-year-old boy named her in his confession of witchcraft. During her trial, she denied the accusations, saying she was being confused for another woman with the same name. She maintained her innocence and it is still believed that Mary Parker’s accusation was a case of mistaken identity.
(3.8” 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. )
