I'm happy to say that after some research and prototyping I am finally in production with my Geomancy Oracle deck. It's available here: https://www.makeplayingcards.com/sell/marketplace/geomancy-oracle.html My Geomancy Oracle Deck is a divination deck based on the ancient practice of Geomancy. It contains 8 dot cards that are used to create individual geomantic tetragrams, 2 template cards that allow the reader to assemble geomantic tetragrams into a full divination spread, 16 cards representing the individual tetragrams and 10 astrological house cards.

Not sure if it will do any good, but I guess the digital token market is taking art theft to a completely new level.

It's taken me a little longer than I wanted, but I guess it's still in time for fall weather. You can now grab detailed instructions and word charts for my "Queen of the Faire" cuff bracelet from my Etsy store. If you're still looking for a fun Delica bead project before the holidays, this would be a good one! https://www.etsy.com/listing/880667864/queen-of-the-faire-instructions?ref=shop_home_active_1
