Well crafted items: what i intend to mean by this is that the items in question have to have been manually created by a creature (so no mass produced items), and it was created in such a way some one decently skilled at such a craft would be able to recognize it as being well made.

After retrieving the right and left bloods of the Gorgon from the Roman Crypt, David put great effort into studying the right vial. He was curious how the vial was able to seemingly replenish its own supply of blood. He found that within the vial was a bone of Medusa, the Gorgon, and that somehow after all these thousands of years the bone marrow itself was still creating new blood, perhaps a weeping at the wound Perseus struck. David decided to take a sampling of this bone marrow and study it under a microscope, see what it did to meat. Though the marrow cells would bond to meat, allowing it to twitch and regrow temporarily, they seemed to die off on their own without a greater source of nourishment, without a host. David decided, risky as it was, he would inject much of the bone marrow into his own bones, and would become that host. He did so, and shuddering with the new senses overtaking his form, David Vance became the body through which the blood of Medusa flowed and multiplied.
