'Center Heart Safety'

7"x7", assorted cloth, satin and cotton, copper leaf, beads, hand and machine stitching, tassels and wire and charm.
I am an amulet maker in training. Triangle shapes are often used and its a first for me. How reassuring to have a tangible object that promises protection. Often hung in doorways or on tree branches or beloved animals or baby ancient and current practice. The shape, knots, tassels, beads, metals and assorted objects are part of the amulet makers work table. I'm planning on 4-5 in order to take on the beauty of this ancient form of prayer.


  1. I'm a big fan of amulets and talismans myself - quite a lovely form of prayer, I think. Yours is gorgeous; I would be happy to hang this above door or window. Can't wait to see the next one!


    1. Sharmon, We agree on liking these amulets and talismans! I'm trying to keep it personal and yet following the amulet makers of the past from all regions...a universal and basic prayer made tangible and hopefully beautiful. Next one almost done!
