CREATION AND SYMBOLISM
Twenty years ago I learned the art of Braucherei -- sometimes called Pow-Wow, Hexerei, or Whisper Healing and have been avidly researching the system ever since. Braucherei s a Pennsylvania German system that concentrates primarily on energy healing, although there are other uses including the art of Fraktur and (more recently -- the first hex sign as opposed to hex design, appeared in print in the 1930's) the creation of Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Signs. As a note, not all Fraktur or Hex Sign artists are Pow-Wow's, although most Pow-Wow's (not all) have used these art forms in their workings. You will also find hex designs on pottery, wooden furniture, and gravestones in our Pennsylvania cemeteries as early as the 1700's. This particular design leans more toward the Fraktur variety of Pennsylvania German Folk Art.

Over the years I've created several Pennsylvania German Folk designs, each with a specific and particular meaning. In this type of art, every element has a purpose. Don't let those old farmers fool you, they may proclaim loudly that the designs are "Jus fer nice"; but, trust me, they know darned well they're not. Every design has a reason. Each design has its own power.

The Parrot was extremely popular in Fraktur art, particularly on birth certificates and household items -- with its primary meaning of Success and Joy. Here we have the multicolored bird symbolizing the simple joy and color that life can bring. Hearts for love, the star for luck, the crown for success and the marigolds for good fortune and monetary gain. The design says: May you be the Queen or King of your own home as long as ye shall live.

The primary use of this design is for success, good fortune, and joy in life.

Every button I create is handcrafted from the original design, to printing, to cutting and pressing the pinback.
