How do you prepare your amulets?

The amulets I prepare as well as my spells are handmade by me; I tap into the powers of mother earth to collect everything I use.
I collect the fresh herbs with the proper ceremonies, I travel to the islands of the Caribbean regularly to collect additional ingredients not available here in Florida. Amulets preparation rituals take place at different locations as per the instructions of the spirits, is a long process and cannot be completed in one day.
