This unique and beautiful symbol is omnipresent in Ghana. It is the most popular in decoration: a reflection on the deeply religious character of the Ghanaian people.
Custom Gye Nyame Amulet
Symbol of the Omnipotence and the Omnipresence Of God. From the Akan aphorism: Abode santann yi firi tete; obi nte ase a onim ne ahyease, na obi ntena ase nkosi ne awie, Gye Nyame. Literal translation: This great panorama of creation dates back to time immemorial; no one lives who saw its beginning and no one will live to see its end, Except God.
Gye Nyame is a symbol meaning “I am afraid of none but God,” or: “Nyame biribi wo sor” suggests that good things come from above. More information about this symbol and it’s back ground may be found in an earlier article.
I have within my jewelry line the amulet in two sizes, one larger deeply carved piece, a smaller flat version and matching earrings. A client who has enjoyed her set requested the larger piece modified to accommodate a much larger chain. The result was to turn the Custom Gye Nyame Amulet into a more leaf-like shape.
This is a one-of-a-kind piece currently in a private collection. Because I specialize in custom, I am able to modify any of my pieces to fit your ideas and needs. To learn more about custom jewelry can sculpture please visit my How to order Custom page.

The Ouroboros (also spelled Uroboros and Oroboris), is an ancient symbol illustrated by a serpent swallowing its own tail, forming a circle. From 1600 B.C. in Egypt to the movie: “the Never Ending Story” the Ouroboros has been found through out many ages, cultures and lore.
The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity, 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 the work.
Amulets by Merlin has captured the Ouroboros in an Amulet with a small diamond shape on the forehead symbolizing the “third eye” adding the concept of perception; textured with scales all around it’s body including “belly scales” this is a full three dimensional sculpture of the Famous Ouroboros.

A few years ago
I was commissioned to make a combination of the two astrological signs
Gemini and Pisces woven together as an amulet.
Since then I have re-carved the piece several times
on the request of several people.
Due to the popularity of the amulet I have decided to develop a new collection of these blends.
I call them Asto-Blends.
A combination of every possibility would be gross (144),
so to develop this special line,
I will be creating these designs as people request them.

“If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.”
The Note Amulet
inlaid crushed turquoise
giving the note a touch of the blues
Music is ancient:
One of the oldest ways to communicate is through music.
We find instruments in tombs, illustrated in paintings and sculpture,
written about as far back as 2000 BC and expanded upon
in every culture on the planet.
Music is powerful:
Those who suffer physical ailments
attribute listening to music as a way
to ease suffering and calm the nerves.
In recent studies,
music is credited in increasing brain matter,
developing sacred and serene spaces,
elevating the poorest of us to fame and stardom.
Music is inspirational:
Both listening to music and playing it
has been found to raise the heart and inspire great works of art,
science and literature.
Music has been harnessed by religions
and story telling all over the world.
In celebration of Music itself, I have created the Sixteenth Note Amulet.
This is a sixteenth note
(the two flags on the stem marks the interval)
and contained within the dot is inlaid crushed turquoise
giving the note a touch of the blues.
One inch tall with a bail behind the flags.

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.
