Focus on a feeling, an accomplishment, or a sacred object, and through the meditative process of wrapping transform this sentiment into a tangible object. The body of the piece can be a small cloth pillow, layered cardboard/paper or folded metal mesh. Precious objects or written words are then placed within. Embellish the outer surface with more words, beads, ribbon, thread, or bits of cloth. Binding will be incorporated for neck attachment or tassels. These amulets can be worn, carried or put in a special place. All materials, other than personal items to be included in the amulet, will be supplied.

Debra Rapoport is an artist, teacher and (LIFE)style artist/healer. She has been featured in
Advanced Style , New York Magazine , BUST, FiberScene , and has taught at the University of California, New York University, and Banff School of Art. Debra continues to create objects and herself as mixed media sculptural forms. Debra’s hope is to inspire others to be themselves and create from “within” and express it “without.” This is the healing power of style!
