I was asked by a couple of performers if I could make a Hoodoo Doll Pendulum. That project was 'already' on my list, and I had gone through several prototypes over the past year. My goal was to create something unique, interesting, and practicle. This little Doll [3.5 inches {9CM} ] is lightweight, but solid. I am not personally into Hoodoo/Voodoo but I find it quite interesting. My research told me that Voodoo is a religion and Hoodoo [conjure] is a magic culture....thus my choice of 'Hoodoo'.
Handmade and hand painted, she wears a sack dress with a cord belt. She apparently was fond of the 'grape' for those curly objects eminating from her head and body [also the feet] are neither snakes or hair curlers Smile...they are naturally curly grape vine twigs. There is a sprout of coarse black hair at the front of her head. I loaded this little gal at the foot area with a N52 neodymium cylinder magnet. This is a Kit! It comes with an aged medallion of tree branch which is also embeded with two neodymium magnets. I painted a Pentagram on this circular piece....and it can be used for in the hand routines etc.. The white eye is actually a rare 5000 year old Sumerian bead. The heads of the included pins are vintage dried seed pods.
All can be carried in the aged wood box. The chain, a vintage brass snake chain, has a carved wood skull at the holding end. Total Pendulum length is 11 inches {28CM}.

Thank-you Balaram. Smile

I was just informed [very politely btw] that my creation maybe more Voodoo than Hoodoo. This was by someone who is more knowledgeable on these things than I am.
That said, as with all my Pendulums....I am open to customization. So if there is an element you would like replaced or otherwise eliminated please let me know...custom work is something I really enjoy.

My best.

Hey Rich,

I know less about Hoodoo/Voodoo then yoo/doo Smile, but that has nothing to do with how very cool your latest creation looks. Excellent as usual! The box is my favorite part! Again, really nice work, Rich

Rich,

Very nice! I like the idea of a kit. Can the painting on the medallion of tree branch be customized for other symbols?

On the box lid, are those upholstery tacks?

Stunning. My favorite piece yet.
I went on-line to order, but for some reason, couldn't access my shopping cart. I'll try again tomorrow.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
