Talismans

Finally available, the Talisman is my jewellery version of the American Indians Medicine Pouches. Each Talisman holds four different crystals, selected by me for their beauty & their properties. It is contained in a glass vial from the 1930s. The chain is sterling silver and a little handmade explicative booklet accompanies each Talisman.
