Voodou Vèvè

I had to look it up, so in fairness, you might not know what a vèvè is either. Dictionary.com didn't have it, but good old Britannica.com explained "in Haitian Voodou, geometric drawings that represent the Iwa (spirits)."

Now that we have that out of the way, I'd like to present BlackWaterSiren. This shop is creating the most beautiful Voodou vèvès into pendants and rings. Using sterling silver, copper, bronze, and 14k gold, these pieces are elegant and mysterious. I'm sure they would be great conversation starters.

Ayizan Velekete: Protects markets, public spaces, doors and barriers
La Sirene: Brings creativity, passion, and a driving force
Loko Atison: Spirit of vegetation, guardian of sanctuaries
Marie Laveau: Voodou Queen of New Orleans
Damballah: The Great Master, Creator of the Universe
Baron Samedi: Master of the Dead, known for outrageous behavior
Click on the links to read more about each of the spirits. There are many more available in the shop so browse around and find the perfect Iwa for yourself. It's important to surround yourself with a little magic.

Tiny medals are also available for each of the spirits. A charm bracelet would be amazing.
