The witch is something that has been around in nearly every culture for a long time. Often in European culture the witch is depicted as an ugly woman who hermits herself in the woods with a familiar. This is often a raven or a black cat to protect her and do her bidding while she cackles and mixes up her potions, spells and hexes. Not this witch, either she was gifted with good looks or maybe she cast a spell on herself but the moon is full and she is out on the prowl.
The signet is approximately 22mm at the top and is designed with a slight curve to make it a more ergonomic fit. It has a motif of a witch flying across a moon while on her broom. The ring is sterling silver.
Strengths: spells, magic and a familiar.
Weaknesses: buckets of water.
The ring comes in a sustainably sourced wooden box as well as the Serpent Cove treasure chest with all its Cove trinkets. Standard postage within Australia included, express and international postage available at an additional cost.
The night air is crisp and still, you can feel the cool air on the breeze and the sweet smell of candy as “trick or treaters” walk the streets. The moon is full and you look up, you see something, what is that? It’s a witch on a broom!! She’s holding up her treat bucket and winks at you as she zips off into the night sky. With a cackle and cry she flies into the night.
The story behind this piece is from my childhood. Often as a kid at my grandparents I got stuck watching older shows on tv, from I Dream of Jeannie to Get Smart and Bewitched. I used to love the look of the shows and the cheap props and outfits. I enjoyed how the end credits for Bewitched had a cartoon of her flying around. I liked the idea of a witch not being an old hag, maybe she is a younger and more attractive lady. So I went with that for this piece.
