St. Raphael necklace is made from a length of variegated silk ribbon yarn in purple and green shades. It is adjustable with length taken in or out by means of large-hole beads that slide up and down on either side. It closes with a toggle clasp.
From the ribbon necklace hangs a black lampwork bead flecked with color and lined with a silver grommet. The St. Raphael medal is done in specialty enamels, fired, and given three coats of clear protective laquer.
St. Raphael is petitioned for marriage, for marriage issues, for safe travel, and against demons.
These medals are notoriously difficult to photograph, and no two are alike anyway as they are all hand-painted individually, but I have included photos of a few other medals to give you an idea of the variety and how they usually look. I can paint other saints and different color schemes if you want something similar for a custom order; I just need adequate time to prepare and paint it, as they are multiple layers involved. Medals are individually prepped and conditioned for enamel paint, hand-painted, fired, and then clear-coated for durability.
All spiritual jewelry is made with respect, devotion, and prayer, and I am happy to pray over it for your situation or petition before I send it to you; just leave me a one- or two-sentence petition in the "note to seller" box as you check out through paypal.
I accept Paypal only. I use the seller assistant software and it opens unpaid item cases automatically at 7 days post-purchase. If you need more time, we need to work out the details before you bid. I'm happy to work with you within reason, but we must discuss it before, not after, you order.
I am happy to combine shipping but you must request a combined invoice before paying. Please use the "request invoice" feature in if you want me to manually confirm your shipping total and combine your items, ESPECIALLY if you are an international buyer or have multiple or large items, so I can double-check that you are getting the lowest possible rate. The store Shipping and Handling FAQ page gives step by step instructions on requesting an invoice and answers common shipping questions.
The FAQ covers shipping and handling procedures in great detail; the link is right under the logo at the top of the item description. You will also receive a link to the FAQ in the payment acknowledgment email you will receive after your payment has cleared. My shipping software sends an automated email when your item ships and uploads the delivery confirmation number into your "my."
Custom work and personal attention take time; I work for quality, not speed.
I am happy to combine shipping for multiple items purchased within a seven-day period. The Shipping/Handling FAQ page covers common shipping questions and the usual fees for combined shipping, international orders, etc.
My oils are ritual items, not cosmetics or perfumes, and nearly everything is hand-made or hand-blended by me, from recipes I have learned or developed over 25+ years of doing this work. All items are sold as curios only, as required by law. I use them myself, though - I don't make anything I do not use myself and have not tested myself -- and many of my clients swear by them.
Please visit my blog at karmazain.livejournal.com for info, updates, tips, tricks, spells, and answers to frequently-asked questions about hoodoo, conjure, and vodoun.
I try to answer all email inquiries within two business days. I get about 100 emails a day, though, so please don't get mad at me if the response to your email is a form letter giving you a link to the FAQ page, if your answer is posted there already. The FAQ page is designed to keep me free from answering the same questions over and over again so that I have time to make, prepare, and package your items, as well as answer all the messages I get asking for personal advice and recommendations. If you are asking a frequently asked question, my assistant may reply and/or give you a link to where you can find the answer. If you are asking a conjure question or need product recommendations, I will answer, but please understand that may take a little more time, especially if your situation is complex or your message is long.
Note that we are not open and do not ship on weekends and federal holidays, so there's no point in freaking out if you email me Friday night and still don't have an answer Sunday night. I always answer my messages, but I get a lot of them, so please be patient if you need my personalized response.
