A person interested in Ancient Medicine asked me if I could make tools for her based on the times of Solomon.
She was studying the book “Solomon’s Key” to find a link between ancient and modern medicine and was convinced Witches, Sorcoreers were the doctors of those days. She had branches of an unfruited Almond Tree (the unfruited was important), we debarked them and then wrapped in silk until the project was complete. I carved the head for the Staff and one wand from 120 year old Oregan and the Swords
and Caduceus are from Huon Pine. Placing the crystals and burning the symbols were involved.
The tools were varnished by the owner, I thought she should have added some colour or variety of varnishes.
This was a fun project that paid well.
