Hello , Like SE said do and intro first . As for your pendulum, do you mean amulet ? . There are some many crystals and they all serve different purposes . Get a book on crystal magic and learn what they are for. For needles I hope your are not using hypodermic needles but sewing ones instead . Depend on where you are , the burying of hypos can get you tossed into jail real quick . Unless you have your own property do not bury anything on public domain it's against the law. Then there are many protection spells , maybe you need to study a little longer . Two years is not a long time , I'm still learning an I've been doing it for decades . DO NOT ASK FOR SPELLS AND DO NOT SHARE ANY , IT'S A BIG NO NO . If you need help ask okay , and again welcome . Also it's no fun pissing in a jar.
