Much is written on the subject including node, mansions (or nakshatras), Lunation and more. For those who love Luna in her many aspects, I have created the Moon Phase Chain. Each link is carved front and back with craters of the lunar surface, each in a phase: full, waxing and waning, gibbous and crescent. Now available in a bracelet.
Moon Phase Bracelet
The moon has been a powerful influence for centuries. The Lore of humanity across many cultures attribute to the Moon many things: from Lunacy to the tides. Watching the moon in it’s phases is something we have been doing for centuries. Learn more about my: Moon Phase Chain.

I have an Ouroboros ring (also spelled Uroboros and Oroboris) in my line for years. After many requests for a different version of the piece, I developed a new and more detailed Ring: Ouroboros Ring with Scales. Like my original version, this is the classic Ouroboros swallowing it’s tail. This time I have omitted the diamond on his head and added scales down his back and along his sides.
Ouroboros Ring with Scales
The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity or cyclical, something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end. It can also signify the concept of primordial unity related to persisting from the beginning with such force or qualities it cannot be destroyed. The Ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological imagery, used in alchemical illustrations, where it symbolizes the circular nature of their work.
This piece may also be used as a pendant! Simply place the Ouroboros on your favorite chain or cord. Each ring is made as it is ordered, providing the recipient to request unusual sizes. To purchase yours, please visit my Ouroboros Ring with Scales Page.
The image of a Stag is a powerful one: it is seen in art, heard of in song, stories and strikes a spark of racial memory which seems to reach back for generations. When one sees an outline of a stag, one gets a sense of freedom, wilderness and awe.
Hern’s Pentacle Amulet
Like the Buffalo in the Native American mid planes culture, the Stag was revered as Sacred among the Celts: offering food, tools, clothing and more for the conscious hunter. To bring down a deer meant the Household would be able to eat and live well for some time. For this and many other reasons, the image of Hern lived in the hearts and minds of the Celts for many generations.
The first mention in literature if Hern (or Herne) is in Shakespeare’s “The Merry wives of Windsor”, however many ascribe the idea of Hern to a much earlier time. A “ghost” who walks the Woods of Windsor Forest with a great rack of horns.
In the relatively new movement of Neo-Paganism, Hern’s Image has been re-awakened; there is a great deal of tribute to Hern in writings, both in fiction and tomes of Celtic Heritage.
To celebrate the Neo-Pagan view, I have created the Hern’s Pentacle Amulet. This combines the image of a stag head whose rack of horn embraces a pentacle. The bail is hidden behind the pentacle to give the amulet a sense of “floating” on your chain or cord.
Brand New from Amulets by Merlin! A piece of jewelry celebrating the universal symbol of Music
for singers, musicians and lovers of the musical arts!
Treble Clef Amulet
A clef (a french word meaning key) is a musical symbol used to indicate the pitch of written notes. Placed on one of the lines at the beginning of the staff (five lines stacked upon each other), indicates the name and pitch of the notes on that line. This line serves as a reference point by which the names of the notes on any other line or space of the staff may be determined.
The Treble Clef’s curl wraps around the second line up on the staff indicating G above middle C, most commonly used in the staff for piano. It is one of three kinds of clef used in modern music notation: F, C, and G.
One inch tall, this three dimensional Treble Clef Amulet has a bail behind the top loop so the pendant looks like it is “floating” on your chain or chord. This small pendant is a great way to celebrate your love for music! Whether you play an instrument, sing or simply love music, the Treble Clef amulet is perfect for the music lover in your life.
The Rose is attributed to Love,
the goddesses Aphrodite and Venus;
it is attributed to purity and many things we consider sacred.
In this one of a kind amulet,
centered is a hand blown piece of glass formed into a rose and gave it wings:
hand engraved the wings to catch and flash the light.
The “root” of the rose is twisted into a Moon Stone,
a stone of Vision.
The amulet is a progression from the spark of inspiration,
how it can blossom and rise beyond what we thought we could accomplish
so long as our hearts are True.
This was not commissioned:
the Rose in Flight was designed and created “all at once”.
I found a glass blower who was interested in using his work
as center pieces in jewelry and developed this in hope to design an entire line
of Silver and glass pieces.
Unfortunately, the glass blower no longer creates,
so this is the only amulet of it’s kind.
Rose in Flight Amulet is now in a private collection.

In my line of jewelry, I have a Yin-Yang Amulet.
Wrapped around the edge is the Ouroboros and for the “two spots”
signifying the Light in Darkness and Darkness in Light I placed pentacles.
This amulet has been a part of my line for many years,
quite popular when I was traveling from one festival to another.
The combination of these three ideas in one piece provided an amulet
quite broad in meaning and focused for a particular kind of person.
Recently I received a request to modify the amulet.
Although she loved the idea of the combination she wrote:
“I am more drawn to the Ankh than I am to the Pentacle,
is it possible to replace the Pentacles with Ankhs?”
As I specialize in custom,
I was glad to do it!
And so, the most recent version of this complex amulet has the Ankh replacing the Pentacles: a Custom Yin Yang Amulet.
If you like what you see in my Jewelry Line,
but want a modification,
Write me and let me know what changes you wish and I will be happy to do so.
Modifications are only a small fee,
but with alterations the piece becomes a one-of-a-kind!
