After encouragement from the members of Psycrets, I have been asked to make my effects commercially availible. The second one will be of interest to story tellers or magi that want an emotional effect that connects to the audience

'Totem' is an effect based on the mythology of animal spirits. The performer shows a spectator a wooden goblet and several silver animal charms. Each charm is introduced with its relative meanings or connections and they are placed into the goblet. The spectator thinks about an ability or power that they would like to attract into their life. They then blindly choose a charm from the goblet and keep it concealed. The performer describes the characteristics of the charm the charm that they are holding. When the spectator opens their hands, it is an exact match.

You are supplied with a handmade wooden goblet, over a dozen charms made of real silver (specific animals may vary), silver bags, 'gimmick' and instructions scroll. This effect is completely hand-made by Raven and Pagan Wheel.

Thanks very much for your encouragement Dee,the magic company I offered this to first decided that my effects looked amateur and should be remade individually by a graphic designer. For £25 oh, please........

Very nice looking props. Effects with these type of props get my attention. I enjoy looking at the craftsmanship involved in making them.
Magic is a vanishing art.

Thank you for not falling for that offer...creating yet another streamline prop!

Looking at your photos it's obvious you've put your whole soul in the making,
which make them so much more interesting, as I'll get something unique not
to be found at the nearest dealer...which is why I decided to get them all!

Can't wait for them to arrive...

All the Best

Well at a £25 price tag, how am I expected to have a graphic designer create each prop????? They are going to want far more than that Smile Smile Smile

Thank you very much for your support, guys, the emails from the dealer that I got were both disharteneing and laughable at the same time. They complained about everything, the 'look' of the props, the fact they were handmade (which I had previously told them), the fact that an 'aged' scroll got ash on their carpet. They told me the lace ribbon on the scroll looked like it came off a ladies bra (it was actually copied from a 16th century ladies bonnet Smile)the list goes on.......They even incorrectly identified a free selection as a type of 'magicians force'...
