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.
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!

Two serpentine dragons in one amulet, facing each other and holding a stone between them; the settings are in the shape of dragon’s teeth. Their wings frame the piece touching on top and below. Their claws weave their magic between them.
Twin Dragons Amulet
This Amulet of Dragons is about a balance of energy suspended in mid air. Fierce dragons are known to fight each other, however these twin dragons hold their own space to provide a balance for each other: recognizing their differences, they support each other in flight, speaking to each other they credit each others perspective. They are the balance of opposites, yet seem exactly alike: their scales, position and movement are dissimilar and because of those differences, support each other. This amulet is a reminder of how opposites attract, how different views expand perspective and how diversity strengthens us all.
The Twin Dragons Amulet is one and a half inch tall amulet is designed for a stone set between each other and comes with an 18” chain permanently attached at the wings.
An artist manifest her idea into a painting
and wanted the design to be re-created as an amulet.
To accomplish the effect for this custom Dream Catcher Amulet,
I was requested to cut stones into delicate shapes.
Unfortunately some stones simply do not hold up well
when cut into tiny shapes:
the corners get caught
or easily chip due to their nature.
Dream Catcher Amulet
For this Amulet,
I had to shape Turquoise into a star shape:
however turquoise crumbles easily
once it gets small enough.
She also wanted a small crescent moon of Lapis Lazuli,
also a problem.
Once the design was developed for the piece
I had suggested we shape the amulets “face”
to provide the stones to be set from the back,
giving the illusion of the various shapes
and still keeping the integrity of the stone and setting:
this gives the amulet a much longer lifetime.
A blood stone was also set below the frame of the catcher,
it too has a special custom setting
individually cared and cast for the amulet.
With Phoenix and stones set into the “web” and hoop of the Dream Catcher
(matching the sketch she developed and sent to me),
the Amulet was complete
and now resides in her private collection.

Polished Agate is an amazing mineral, it reveals shapes and patterns which appears like tiny scenes. I came across a green agate and found layers of deep water in the sedimentary layers. Shaped like a water-drop, it seemed appropriate to frame it with sterling waves and crown the amulet with a sculpture of a Sea Spirit. The Lady of Oceans Amulet is hung with a back bail, a kind of loop hidden behind the head of the spirit, making the piece appear to float on a chain or cord. This one of a kind amulet was purchased days after completion and resides in a private collection.

A young man wrote to me asking if I could make a special amulet for him: a St. Christopher Amulet of a kind I had never hear of before. He wrote:
“As you may or may not be aware, ancient Christian tradition regarded St. Christopher as a dog (or as a member of a race of dog-faced humanoids). I have speculated, as a result of having done research on this subject (one of my advanced degrees in theology), that St. Christopher was a dog who saved a child from water and, in a manner similar to St. Gwinifort, was venerated by a group of local Christians (in antiquity, the acknowledgment of a person’s (or dog’s) sanctity was made from the bottom up rather than from the top down as is the case today).”
He then sent me an image of his beloved friend who had passed and wished for me to give the amulet his likeness.
I was honored and set to work on the project and created a St. Christopher Amulet in sterling silver, framed as the ones in the Olde Days: the central figure of Saint Christopher offering a benediction of peace, holding a cross with the countenance of his blessed canine.

I wrote earlier about the Triquetra Amulet: simply meaning “triangle” and has been used to referred to a variety of three-cornered shapes but has been evolved into a symbol of depth. To accompany the Amulet, I have created a set of earrings of the same design: the Triquetra Earrings.
Added to the Triquetra is a woven circle: The Unity of the Trinity, the Circle of Love unifies all. The Triquetra Earrings are for those who cherish the Trinity in any of its forms: The love of family, their religion, the earth itself, or simply find the shape of the triangle pleasing to their eye.
