A friend of mine asked me to make a special piece for him.
He did some sketches
and after a little discussion
I was able to create the Trillium Amulet.
In his own words:
“I am very blessed by the people in my life. Several months ago, I was looking for a way to represent “Home”. I debated lots of different options most of which had “3’s” in them. Then I came across a post I sent to a friend explaining what a trillium flower was.
“This particular type of Trillium is native to the Great Smokey Mountains of Tn, Ky, NC, and Ga. I have always had them near me except when I lived in Nevada and West Tennessee. I have never know them in such abundance as where I live now in the house I share with Kaly in the foothills of the Smokey’s.
“The name of this species is Trillium Lutem, The Three Fold Flame. I then drew the sketch. Originally it was three circles representing the three worlds of Creation. I removed the center circle which represented Annwn, the Otherworld or the Triple Flame of Creation and replaced it with the Trillium Luteum.
“I sent this picture to my friend and master silversmith Kirk McLaren of Amulets by Merlin with a request that he produce it in silver for me. After some discussion and a bit of magick on his part, the master for the amulet.”
The Trillium Amulet is of solid sterling silver
featuring a Trillium Flower
framed in circles of light and vine
hung with a back bail for wearing with a chain or cord.
This piece is a limited edition amulet
available only to the person who commissioned it
and considered a “Private design”;
not available to the public.
