ADORNMENT OF SUBSIDED POWER
Around the large green belt of Fairmount Park between Philadelphia and Germantown, not far from Wissahickon Creek, are a cluster places named after solitary folk. There’s Hermit Street, Hermit Terrace, and Hermit Lane. The story behind the street names dates back to June 1694, when a brotherhood of German mystics set up shop on the slopes of Wissahickon. Under the leadership of a twenty-one year old pietist named Johannes Kelpius, they practiced medicine, music, and good old-fashioned magic. Deep in the Wissahickon woods even to this day stands the only artifact left by the order: The stone cave where the master of the order practiced his solitary ways. <br /><br />
When on investigation there, there wasn't much there to be found, until we collected the strength to venture inside the cave. Once inside, we turned on our flashlights and looked around, and after almost giving up on the place we came across a small lockbox on the floor in one of the corners. I picked it up and tried to open it, but the lock still held true, so we decided to take the lockbox back with us and open with better suited tools. After getting the tools, we managed to crack the lock on the box, and as soon as we did we peered inside. <br /><br />
The piece inside the lockbox was indeed a mystical looking one. After putting it through several of our research trials, it has been discovered that this piece has been blessed by Johannes himself! The wearer of the piece is given the gift of better understanding the arts of the ancient magics. One receives some masteries over the four elements; earth, air, fire, and water. When attempting to use the powers this piece gives, one must focus intensely on that element, and some practice is needed before utter control over the elements is given to the wearer. With this piece, practice makes perfect! Purchase it at Haunted Curiosities, and the elements can become your personal play things!<br /><br />
THIS IS A PIECE THAT CAN BE USED AS A TIE CLIP, OR CAN BE PLACED ON A COLLAR OR ADORNED ON YOU, OR AN ACCESSORY TO IMPLODE THE POWERS UPON YOU!
