Loved by the Ancient Egyptians and also loved by us.
Talismans have been an incredibly popular protective symbol since the days of the Ancient Egyptians, and the definition of a talisman is an object believed to bring good luck and protection to the owner. The most popular talismans are objects you ‘wear’ (amulets) such as jewellery so you are able to keep them close to you, benefitting from their ‘magic’ but they can also be objects placed around your home, personal space, built into architecture or even just carried in your pocket!
A rabbit’s foot is a rather strange example of a Talisman, but a very popular one in times gone by and people believed that carrying one with you would protect you from evil.
There are many symbols and shapes which have been used as talismans throughout time: including engraved items, religious symbols, little figurines/characters and even gemstones. But the one thing that marries them all together is the common belief that these little tokens are magical, possessing the power to protect their owner from bad omens.
We absolutely love to believe that there is more to the world and universe than just what we can see with our own eyes, and so believing that little objects such as talismans and gemstones really do possess healing qualities is something we are all for getting on board with!
My favourite talisman symbol has to be the eye, which is probably why I spend a lot of my time doodling designs on my sketch pads in this design. Most of my eye designs haven’t made it into our jewellery collections yet, I can never seem find the time I need to bring all of my ideas to life, but I’m obsessed with the idea that this little eye can ward off danger and protect you.
The symbol of an eye as a talisman has been popular since the Ancient Egyptian times, with many believing that the symbol had therapeutic properties and protected the wearer from ill-health and misfortune. The eye was believed to ward off danger and see it coming before it reaches you. As well as seeing danger and protecting you from it, it is also believed to bring luck and good fortune too. What a fab trio of powers!
As we become more and more busy with our ever demanding lives, I thought it was important to create some modern day talismans that would be perfect for popping on in the morning so we can go about our days with that added bit of magic and protection following us around, and so I decided to bring some of our eye designs to life. They will also add effortless style to any outfit and I love them!
Wear our talismans as a symbol of strength against the many things that challenge us in the modern world, and enjoy the idea of joining our ancestors and keeping the ancient belief of talisman power alive.
