Omandala Amulet

$40.00

ryusho2016-20161106_061811Now available small Omandala amulets which can be worn or carried or even remain in your home altar or sacred space. These are cast from epoxy resin and have nickel free attachments for you to use with your own necklace.  On the back side of the Omandala a dedication and date as well as the stamp or seal of the priest who will do the eye-opening or dedication.  

Ordering this amulet is a two part process.  The first step is to print out the Mandala Dedication Form; please follow the print instructions carefully.  If you will be having your local priest write this out then take the form to that person.  If I will be doing the dedication then you may by-pass the printing and send me what you want to be on the back when you pay for the amulet.  In the check out process please state your wish or prayer in the comments to seller box. 

On the form for your priest they may write anything the two of you agree upon. Then when your priest completes this form you will then mail it back to me.

When you mail the form back is the time when you actually order the amulet so please complete the transaction when you mail the form.  In the comments to seller box please state that you have mailed the form so I will know to expect it.

Upon my receiving the completed form I will copy and reduce the form to the appropriate sized and then cast your amulet.  The time for me to complete the cast and have ready to mail to you will be about 1 week.  This ensures enough time for the resin to fully cure to make this as long lasting an item as possible.  

Some notes on this item are:

  • I am not using commercial or industrial strength resins which many resin/plastic items bought in stores are made from.  This is due to the dangerous nature of the fumes during the creation.  I do not have a separate space nor high volume air exchange and do not wish to endanger my health any more than necessary.
  • This item is not as durable as commercial items.  While it will last longer than you or I shall live if used in what would be consistent with normal use such as wearing around the neck or placing on an altar, it will not last until the end of the world.  
  • This item will scratch.  It will scratch easier than commercial items.  This is due to not using the afore mentioned dangerous and toxic chemicals.  I have great sympathy for those who work in poor conditions to make plastic junk for us to use without thought about the hazards.
  • This item can not be buffed or polished.  This means neither you nor I can polish it without causing more harm than good.  You’ve been warned.  
  • This item can be recoated and that will restore the shine as well as cause the scratches to vanish (well actually they simply get filled in and become invisible unless UNLESS you have applied a colorant which has become permanent in the resin)  I can sand the item to try to remove the mark.
  • Here is the really cool thing though.  If it becomes damaged or defaced it can be cremated and a new object can be made.  The overall affect on the environment I am not sure of though I do know it will be using less dangerous chemicals and processes than other resin items and less than the process of making paper.
