This pouch was inspired by two symbols: the pentagram and the spiral. These two ancient symbols date back thousands of years and their meanings are varied. The pentagram often represents the four elements: earth wind, fire, water and the fifth element of spirit; but it is also often associated with the Goddess, this was more the angle I took. I personally associate the spiral with life and creation.
I have taken a slightly different approach to the pentagram: it is imperfect and doesn’t have equal angles but is in fact made up of five sticks bound together with a rosebud spiral wrapping its way through the star. I chose to add roses to the design as to me these are a perfect natural representation of the Goddess: soft and beautiful (flower) but also harsh and protective (thorns). Roses are also associated with the Greek Goddess of Love Aphrodite.
I hand printed these pink poly-satin pouches with a hand carved spiral pentagram and roses stamp on my etching press. I finished the pouches with poly-satin ribbons in three different shades of pink, pearlesque hot pink and pastel pink plastic beads and iridescent pink plastic beads. The pouches are lined with hot pink cotton.
They are great for storing all sorts of things, such as: Tarot Cards (the pouch will fit a deck of 70mm x120mm tarot cards), Gem Stones, Rune Stones, Dice, Jewellery etc..
Size: approx. 15,5cm x 21cm
