The Gift

"Do you prefer your reality neat or blended with magic?"

You find yourself in a fairytale, an exotic country. In the market square, chance leads you to cross paths with an old man, his eyes under the hood are deep black, like stars. You feel he's known you forever. He asks you strange, confusing questions. He gives you something, presses it in your palm. When you lift your gaze again, he's gone. A bird shoots across the sky like an arrow pointing west. The quest begins...

The silk for this amulet bag was steeped in romantic tales and dyed to a dark blue with a teal cast. The pouch closes with a piece of silk cord dyed with indigo and finished with faceted beads. The ends of the cord have been combed into tassels.

In the shop on Thursday.
