Miniature Custom Personal (Travel) Altar - Made to Order


These miniature shrines are what I call pocket shrines, and they are perfect as travel altars or for those with limited space, who would like to be able to create a sacred focal point for prayer and meditation where ever they go.

$$$ I do accept payment plans for this item, please message me before you purchase -- and we'll set up a custom listing for you. $$$

Size: 3" Diameter by about 1" thick
Fibers, stitches, and colors used in stitching depend on design and intention of shrine.
Vegan options available

Each travel altar pocket shrine is has two hand embroidered symbols, one on each side. What those symbols are, is up to you. I'll contact you after purchase, to guide you through a discovery experience to determine the symbols that will adorn your altar.

After we determine the overall symbols for your altar, I'll send you sketches of your symbols and thoughts around fabrics, colors and stitches. When you approve, I'll begin stitching and assembling your shrine.

The total process can take 6-8 weeks, depending on how quickly we come to a design.

✁✁✁✁✁ Fabric is generally cotton, muslin or linen, but dupioni silk also works well. Be sure to select your option! ✁✁✁✁✁✁

Please note that there are some symbols that may be spiritually powerful for you that my faith-tradition does not allow me work with. Generally, those are specific G!d/ddess images and crosses or crucifixes. I can craft with some Christian symbolism, but we should discuss that before you purchase.
