I love the Tarot. I've been reading the cards for over 30 thirty years. When I take out my deck, I feel a sense of mystic knowing and mystery coming from them and the reading to come.
Even more, I feel that connection to my Romani grandmother and all the women who went before, the women that spent their lives in the back of caravans and dusty little shops, reading the cards for the inquisitive and interested stranger.
As an artist, I started designing my own deck. I've only completed about 15 cards so far as it's a project that I feel can't be rushed.
Featured as a wooden charm here is my interpretation of Death, an inch and half long and 3/4ths of an inch wide.
Just remember that the Death card is not a card about literal death.
It's about an end but also a new beginning. Things may have been stagnating in your life but that's all about to change.
Go with it. Embrace the opportunities. Embrace the possibilities.
I've included a skull charm as well as an Ohm charm as in my search for enlightenment, paganism and Buddhism seem to meld seamlessly with the ancient wisdom of the Tarot.
The chain is crafted of Czech glass beads, interposed with antique silver fancy jump rings, 30 inches in length.
