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 Rainbow Moonstone, Obsidian, and natural wood, this piece is named for Sarah Good, executed on July 19, 1692. At the time of the Salem witch hysteria, Sarah was a poor, pregnant beggar, which made her a prime target. In February of 1692, two young girls accused Sarah and two others (Tituba and Sarah Osburn) of witchcraft. The women denied the accusations until Tituba confessed that they had all met with the devil. In March, Sarah's 4-year-old daughter was also accused of witchcraft and spent eight months in jail before being released. Sarah's execution was pushed back until after the birth of her child. As she stood at the gallows, Reverend Nicolas Noyes called her a witch, to which she replied: “You are a liar. I am no more a witch than you are a wizard, and if you take away my life God will give you blood to drink!”
