Talisman Set #10: Fig, Apple, Rose

This talisman set has sold.

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 students or other newsletter subscribers.

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

The three amulets are each a different wood:

I ritually blessed all three amulets in a major Faerie rite.

The apple piece is a pentacle for your altar.

A pentacle will safeguard and bless the home, add power and protection to your rituals, and honor your wild, witchy heart.

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

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

I believe apple wood: fosters wisdom, as well as freedom from suppression, oppression, and depression; and is good for opening to joyful living and satisfying sexuality.

After all, Apple was the sacred tree on the isle of Avalon, where ancient Pagan priestesses of the Goddess lived and cast their Fey spells, free to live as they wished, learning wisdoms from the other realms. Apples also brings to mind the garden of Eden. Eve refused to kowtow to a God who didn’t want her to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. She wanted freedom and wisdom. Everything in this paragraph leads to what is stated in the above paragraph.

Plus, anything that got Eve into so much trouble with a bullying, patriarchal, uptight Jehovah must have had a sex-related aspect. As does all freedom! Yet another reason to believe apple wood invokes healthy sexuality.

Apple wood is an excellent amulet for prosperity. I doubt Eve was actually thrown out of any garden just for eating an apple! Free Pagans still live in the Goddess’ abundant garden; She loves us!

Given the Avalon myth and Eve’s story, apple seemed a perfect wood on which to pyrograph a pentacle, the symbol of the witch. (Pyrography is the art of burning designs in wood.)

The pyrography is my original one-of-a-kind shamanic design that adds to the apple wood and pentacle’s powers.

I’m rather insistent about asymmetry and won’t even make a pentacle symmetrical, usually.

Rotate the pentacle: you’ll notice the design can be viewed any-side-up.

I pyrographed the apple Ogham on the back of this thick, gorgeous chunk of wood:

A pentacle that is a little smaller but still substantial, like this one, suits me. It easily tucks into a purse or backpack, so its powers can go with me. The amulet also feels good in the hand—great to hold while doing magic.

This set also includes an amulet pendant, crafted from the wood of a wild rosebush.

Rose is sacred to the Faerie Queen and King, so draws Their blessings and protection. Rose also adds Fey power to spells.

Rose also represents mysticism, helping you see into the Mysteries and find their power.

Though I’ve always been drawn to roses, sensing their spiritual importance and presence at the heart of the Mysteries, crafting rose wood affirmed its power to me.

This enchanted jewelry is from a wild rose bush I had to cut back before its thorns destroyed wiring on a utility pole. The Faerie Queen helped and blessed the work. The wood cured beautifully and is so elegant that sometimes I don’t pyrograph it.

The set also includes a fig wood amulet pendant.

Fig trees hold abundance magic. If you’ve ever bit into one of their luscious fruits, you’ll see why fig trees are a perfect symbol for the good life. Figs have been part of Mediterranean culture forever. Given all this, when strega me found a piece of fig wood just big enough for two pendants, you better believe I kept one for myself.

The wood had a pithy core that was quite off-center. I hollowed it out for stringing. This natural formation causes the pendant to hang lopsided, matching the happy, lopsided grin of a Pagan who’s enjoying abundance from the Old Gods. The aesthetic is bold and modern, while the energy is ancient and ecstatic.

I love ferreting through my collection for the right beads. The amber-colored glass, which has bits of pale blue that are like an astral mist, is accented by the faceted cobalt blue beads. Transparent cobalt blue has a lovely spiritual vibration.

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

Cost for the entire 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.

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

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