Talisman Set #9: Birch and Elm

Continue to read this post anyway, to learn about one-of-a-kind sets.

This one-of-a-kind handcrafted set is available exclusively to one of my newsletter subscribers.

Consisting of two unique talismans, the set is suited to one buyer who’ll think, “This is mine.”

The talismans are each a different wood, from a tree sacred to the Celts:

I ritually blessed both amulets in a major Faerie rite.

The birch piece is a pentacle for your altar.

A pentacle will protect and bless the home, add power and protection to your rites, and honor your wild witchy spirit.

Whether on the altar or elsewhere in your dwelling, this pentacle will safeguard and bless the home. I display my wood pentacle by leaning it against a pretty vase.

A pentacle also symbolizes the wisdom and free ways of witches, and honors sexuality.

Birch trees hold the magic of new beginnings and renewal.

The pyrography is my original one-of-a-kind design that adds to the birch and pentacle’s powers. Home decor with mojo. (Pyrography is the art of burning designs in wood.)

The design is my usual insistent asymmetry. I won’t even make a pentacle symmetrical, usually.

If you rotate the pentacle, you’ll notice the design can be viewed any-side-up.

I pyrographed the birch Ogham on the back. I wish the photo showed how smooth it is.

I left the bark on because it’s beautiful. It might come off since I refuse to use a polyurethane finish or the like. I applied a lovely, natural, beeswax blend instead. Whoever buys this sacred artifact can enjoy its bark for as long it lasts then, if the bark comes off, still enjoy a lovely talisman.

The elm wood piece is a pendant talisman.


Elm is a high tree, so no surprise it traditionally represents seeing the large picture and being objective. My sense of the wood, when I hold it and tune in, is that elm helps me experience my feelings more fully and comfortably instead of suppressing them, so I can assess a challenge or other situation more accurately and wisely, and am proactive rather than reactive. I also intuit elm helps me stay down to earth when exploring strong emotions, remember my true goals, and act on them.

I thought all those traits might be desirable for someone who wants birch for new beginnings.

I looked forward to wood burning my first piece of elm but, when I finished sanding, the wood was so beautiful that I hesitated to cover it up with pyrography. Moments later, I learned that burning elm is verboten in lore. Interesting. I left this magical jewelry simple, showing its gorgeousness.

To benefit from the pendant’s power when you don’t want to wear it or otherwise carry it on you, put it on your altar or wall.

Cost for the set is $130 plus $5 shipping. I ship only to U.S. non-military addresses. Scroll down to pay securely with PayPal.





If this set calls, grab it. I’m constitutionally incapable of repeating my designs.

The birch is my first large, detailed piece. It was exciting to have developed my skill enough for this project and to obtain a large enough piece of wood. My sets have previously consisted of three pieces. Since the birch is a large and detailed, and I don’t want to raise my price, I’m offering this two-piece set. Is it yours?

Your set will arrive with simple care instructions to keep the wood beautiful. I’ll also enclose a print up of this post about the set.

Each amulet is coated with a natural beeswax and oil treatment. The pendant is strung on waxed cotton cord. All wood was ethically harvested.
