Stunning Step by Step Project Celebrating the Heart

Amulet bag: a small pouch worn around the neck to hold precious mementos or objects, and have been worn in many cultures throughout history. Amulets are typically thought to be objects that protect a person from harm, ward off evil spirits, bring luck, attract good fortune, or remind you of a loved one.

We are ecstatic with this new project from Debra!  While we are launching it timed to Valentines Day, it is truly timeless.  We love the idea of this amulet bag holding a special semi-precious stone, a momento or other secrets.  It will look wonderful in other color waves and we can’t wait to see what our friends and followers will create with it.
