Sometimes it arrived in the form of a care package from my amazing Mom with dry soups to last for weeks, sometimes it arrived in the form of a benevolent stranger with some amazing advice.
Whatever the time, I always seemed surrounded by blessings. This necklace is a talisman of sorts, but I don't necessarily believe in evil as much as I believe that we all get lost, so this is to protect your soul when you're lost in the proverbial woods.

There is a deer hoof for speed, an owl for wisdom, a tiger eye stone to see in the dark and a sprout to grow. The owl on this necklace is a dear piece I purchased a few months ago at my favorite bead store, a place resounding with good energy and exotic and rare pieces.
