October Country Spell Jar ✦ Copper Wax
“...that country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay. That country composed in the main of cellars, sub-cellars, coal-bins, closets, attics, and pantries faced away from the sun. That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain...” - Ray Bradbury
My October Country jewelry collection and the corresponding spell jar were born of a land forever extant in my inner world, a land of perpetual Octobers. Where plump pumpkins on twisted vines line every field and wheat eternally folds beneath the scythe, where silver cobwebs cling to antique perfume bottles and orange oak leaves lay pressed within dusty old books, where winged death heads leap from Puritan gravestones and fly with a coven of witches across the moon, where the ancient magic of Samhain fills the air and sends shivers down the spine. This is where my spirit eternally resides. This is The October Country. These spell jars correspond with this collection, and are meant to capture this magical time and space, to anchor you in October even when it’s over and gone. The name of these jars is a nod to one of my favorite writers, Ray Bradbury, and his ability to capture with words The October Country that stirs in so many of our hearts. Each jar contains a pumpkin-like putka seed pod, a smoky quartz point, and a "citrine" (aka heated amethyst) point. They measure 1 1/2 inches tall, and are hand-sealed with copper wax and a pumpkin stamp. The contents and wax seals vary from jar to jar, as natural and handmade objects do. These are perfect as talismans for the home, decor, or additions to your altar.

Please note that as this is natural material, the seed pod may darken more as time passes. They also may deposit some dust onto the inside of the jar in transit, granting an aged artifact look.
