Custom Fixed Altar Paket
This is a CUSTOM listing. Your paket will be delivered to you within approximately five weeks of your order. (This is assuming I don't have to go tracking down or ordering anything unusual to make it.) Please note per TOS that posted handling times are estimates, not guarantees.
After you order, you tell me what blessing, intention, prayer, or spirit your paket is for by filling out the mojo, paket, and pendant intake form. I will dress, fix, and bless a glass vigil candle for your intention and set the light on my altars. When the candle has burned away, I will make a paket for you out of the ritual remains.
A paket is something like a mojo bag in that it is a "container spell." Pakets are generally permanently sealed as part of their creation, though, and they are pretty much never bags with drawstrings. In this case, your paket will be made from the candle glass that is left when your candle is finished burning. I then fill it with appropriate herbs, flowers, stones, curios, powders, roots, oils, and/or minerals, seal it, and build a custom piece of spiritual folk art around it.
The photos show a variety of pakets I've made over the years. One of the first ones I ever made for someone else was for prosperity and included a huge chunk of dragon's blood, pyrite chips, a large lodestone, and more herbs than you could fit into five mojo bags. These are typically made along these lines aesthetically, with satin, sequins, ribbon, beads, feathers, pins, charms, coins, etc. Absolutely nothing is glued in creating these pakets - they are sewn, pinned, nailed, knotted, woven, sealed with wax, or otherwise secured, but I have yet to use any glue in one of these altar pakets.
I can make a paket specific to a saint, to a lwa, to a spirit; or I can make a paket for your job search, your love life, or your high-stakes test or interview. Each piece is made individually, one at a time, with my full attention and the benefit of my 30+ years of experience working with ritual art, spirits, and herblore.
International customers, please inquire. These are heavy and quite expensive to ship internationally. And no matter how carefully you pack something like this, an overseas trip is a lot of wear and tear to put on a glass item like this. I can make a less rigid-bodied paket for you that will withstand the trip and won't be as heavy, but let's talk about what you're wanting first.
Plus, if I don't know you from Adam's housecat, I'm unlikely to take the risk involved in letting you order one of these. Customers who freak out and put in a dispute or chargeback, like one particularly nasty customer did a few years ago, essentially screw me and all my customers who are waiting on me to ship *their* orders by tying up the available funds in my business account, and it can take weeks for these to be resolved even when I can provide proof of TOS and/or shipment.
