Black Lotus Kult All Saints Amulets!

All Saints 2

The first wave of an intended small edition of these were released in 2013. The edition was never completed due to the death of legendary jewelry designer Mark Defrates.

Each of these sterling silver amulets are handmade, one of a kind items. Mark pasted the design onto sheet, drilled and cut them out using non-powered tools, and then stamped with hand punches and worked the piece with files and small tools. To finish, the bail was hard-soldered, and then they were given a hand-polish. It was very labor-intensive compared to letting a computer and machine do it, but this is what Mark and his wife demanded to ensure the quality they desired.

The design is based on Hagen von Tulien’s stunning “Black Lotus Kult” artwork. Each of these pendants were personally charged by Michael Bertiaux, and given a blessing by him of “Love, Joy and Prosperity” for the new owner. These were then charged in a “Typhonian Tantric” ritual by Black Lotus Kult, and further blessed in a mass of the Ecclesia Gnostica Spiritualis.

In respect to Mark, these will never be reproduced by another jeweler, thus is is the only edition of this artwork.

Price – $999

BLK Celebration 2019 – Caroline Wise Returns!

Caroline Wise provided many highlights of last year’s Chicago BLK Celebration. It is our honour to have her back for BLK Celebration 2019

Caroline Wise 

presents

Finding the Deer Mother in the Cults of the Shadows

Elen

Much of the light that has been cast on the mysteries of the goddess Elen of the Ways has come from the research of Caroline Wise. In this talk, she will inform and involve the audience while delving into animal masks and forms that cloak our earliest deities, following the deer goddess across the earth and sky, with her allies and foes.

Caroline

Caroline inaugurated the re-publishing of Kenneth’s Grant‘s books in the late 1980s which paved the way for his the unpublished works to see the light. She has been an occult bookshop owner, a psychic quester, and priestess of the goddess, who has contributed to several books – on goddesses, on Florence Farr, and on Legendary London. She compiled the book Finding Elen, the Quest for Elen of the Ways, about the forgotten deer goddesses.

In providing information regarding this posting, she also mentioned that she is “rather fond of The Black Lotus Kult“.

We love you too Caroline!

In a collaboration with Black Lotus KultKindle Cimmerian and Caroline have created a special illustrative performance to accompany this talk to bring the Goddess into the room.

Kindle Elen II
