Overview

From the earliest days of prehistory people have protected themselves with the use of amulet-objects imbued with mysterious and magical powers. Prayers, offerings and sacrifices were offered to the good spirits to grant blessings, amulets stopped the evil spirits from taking them away. Worn on the body, usually around the neck, they provided health, luck, fertility, power, success and almost any other need. When carrying an inscription, maybe pieces of parchment with scripture quotes, they can be called charms. Over the years they have come and gone in fashion but their purpose endures, and they are again increasing in popularity. Why not wear something attractive that has significance for you? That maybe you have made yourself? They need not be difficult to make. This book supplies all the information you need to make your own.
