Something a little different in the shop! Stay tuned for more, I will soon be doing large pixel pieces as a stream on Twitch! A little nervous, but it’ll be an easy way to show people how to make sprites of their own and show off some more complicated pieces I would like to work on.

Torch-lit city; frost-grown city; city of gems and pale gold; sunken city: Prayer beads for the Faery and the Tuatha. 

A prayer bead set inspired by the four holy cities and their treasures: spear, sword, stone, cauldron. Charms and a quartz crystal represent the treasures, while blue aventurine, snow quartz, pyrite and fire agate represent the cities. Wood represents the Tuatha, steadfast ones who remain.

These were a custom commission through my shop, Sister Wednesday.
