Never Been Pierced Abundance Spell Doll, Minnesota

Collected April 2022

“A poppet (or doll baby, spell doll, or effigy) is widely used in many religious and magical traditions around the world. These dolls are used in sympathetic magic – where the doll represents a person. They can be used for all types of workings such as healing, love, protection, banishing, binding, and more. I love using faceless dolls in my own practice as I feel they more easily become whatever I intend them to be.

My dolls are created using techniques from folk art dolls, pioneer dolls, motanka dolls, zadanica dolls, and corn husk dolls. The doll is not sewn (has never been pierced). Edges at the feet are intentionally left raw and may fray when handled frequently.

Yellow: abundance and joy, friendship, wisdom”
