What is a talisman?
A talisman, as I use the word, generally refers to an object that in some way has come to ‘hold power’ for lack of a better term. By ‘hold power’ I mean it has a function intrinsically, intrinsic meaning, "belonging to the nature of a thing.” Not exactly a battery, not exactly a spell, not exactly a spirit, but still…it is not a ‘normal’ object. It is in some way very special. And it ‘holds’ this specialness, and through use or contact allows another or others to use this specialness. You can read more about talismans in my blog post, “The Talisman: Object & Being.”
When are your talismans available for sale?
I build talismans year-round, one collection at a time following the lead of my muses & allies. Whenever I finish a collection, I put it up for sale in the Store on my website. Talismanic pieces from each collection can be purchased on a first-come, first-serve basis. As pieces from a collection sell, the Store indicates which ones are available and which ones have “sold-out.”
