Amulets are pieces of jewelry which are used for a purpose, each one holds a significant idea treasured by an individual and may be used as a reminder or tool. Sometimes it can represent a relationship such as a wedding ring represents the Union between people who are devoted to each other. Friendships, brotherhoods, circles, groves, churches, temples, families, societies; all these and more can harness a symbol crystalized as a ring or pendant and used as an amulet.
The Astro Blends take two symbols from the Zodiac and combine them to create something new. In the majority of most people’s chart, we are born under a Sun sign (the house of Sun) and a Moon Sign (the house the moon occupies) at the time of one’s birth. By calculating these two aspects One can get a more accurate idea of the chart rather than using the basic House of One’s Sun.
The Astro Blend many also be viewed as combining the two sun sign of a pair of friends or lovers, the Astro Blend may represent the friendship itself: the strength of two people’s attributes, strengths and how they support each other.
When I design and make these Astro Blend Amulets, I weave them together creating a new glyph to reflect the concepts of blended ideas. Because they are Amulets, I attempt to project the core meaning with the shape of the piece.
Blending the all Astrological symbols will take some time and I have only begun this project. When you go to my website you will only find a few that I have created so far. Should you want me to make a blend I haven’t created yet, I would only be too happy to do so for you.
If you wish to have something made that isn’t an Astro Blend, no problem. Simply go to my How to order Custom Page for details on how to make something special for you, your friends or loved ones, even your group or organization.
I look forward to hearing from you.
One of the first designed Isaac Bonewits requested I make for him is the Druid Sigil.
Well over ten years ago Isaac Bonewitz was attempting to expand his offerings beyond this books and lectures contacted me to develop his designs. At the time he was making stickers of his graphics. At a Festival he and I was talking between his lectures and I offered to translate his drawings into amulets. He pointed out the Sigil was not often used. He explained in depth the concept behind it.
In his own words:
“The Druid Sigil is most often rendered as a circle with two vertical lines passing through it (see left). Frequently this is drawn, painted, embroidered, etc. as a wreath of leaves with two staves (or spears for the warrior types) passing through (see right). Twenty years back, a ceremonial tabbard was made with a tree in full leaf on the front and the Sigil on the back with its wreath and stavewood matching.”
“I think that it is a quintessentially female symbol and is thus psychologically powerful. For political and metaphysical reasons, I think it’s important for members of a religion that many folks erroneously assume is male-dominated to have a constant reminder of the eternal power of the female force(s) of Nature. As a magical sign, I’ve used the Druid Sigil for over thirty years as both a blessing symbol and as a banishing sign. From a magical point of view, it is fully as powerful as a pentagram, Seal of Solomon or cross, and meditation upon it will provide many insights.”
The Druid Sigil is available in my website as an amulet, and ring. I can also create a custom piece for you. Please check out my How to order Custom Page.
To “Scry” is to gaze into a pool of water,
a crystal ball or jewel,
and see visions of spirits or divination.
This technique transcends culture:
practiced all over the world by many peoples.
The Scrying Amulet
A Sphere of opalescent glass gripped in a sterling silver hand.
The classic image of a crystal ball
set into the fingers of a tiny sculpted hand
The Scrying Amulet is designed to hang on a top bail
which sweeps around the wrist like a tiny serpent.
The glass is opalescent creating a multi-colored effect
swirling as it turns,
bouncing light through it’s spherical lens.

The Faery Star Amulet with earrings!
A great combination for those who love the Faery Star:
this includes a chain for the pendant.
Faery Star Collection
The Faery Star is based on Faeids called Faeidism
which consists of the rites, rituals, practices, and wisdom
of those who live a path in life seek to be in touch with the Faery realm.
Faeids commonly wear the Faery Star or Elven Star
as their symbol.
This is a seven-pointed Star was thought to be given to humanity
by the Fae representing the connection to the
World of Faerie so they may recognize each other.
The piece is 11/16” (or 18mm +/-) with a tighter weave in the center
than the Heptagram Amulet, giving it a more organic feel,
perhaps the kind of star a Faery would make,
light weight and partially domed,
a deep carving,
framed in a circle and including a chain with matching earrings.

The Silver Bullet has an ever expanding lore: from the Lone Ranger to the “only thing that will bring down a ware-wolf”, the power of the Silver Bullet has been noted across the globe.
Silver itself is an interesting metal. It’s noted value is cherished in Judaic Law (Halakha). The lowest fiscal amount that a Jewish court, or Beth Din, can convene to adjudicate a case over is a shova pruta (value of a Babylonian pruta coin).
Silver has been long used in talismanic purposes: noted to be a “Lunar” metal, it tends to “hold” strong emotion thus able to hold and keep a “charge” easily. Many of the Lunar seals of Solomon are made of silver, and because of it’s properties, other talisman and amulet harness sterling silver as it’s main component.
The use of silver in a bullet bestows upon the purity of purpose: when the Lone Ranger fires his silver bullet, he is eliminating evil by the Pure Intent of Justice. In the Grim’s Fairy Tale: The Two Brothers they use a silver bullet to bring down an “Evil Witch” who was noted a “Bullet Proof” (please note: in my opinion should the Witch have been one of good intent, the bullet would have not harmed her, thus speaking to the purity of the weapon interacting with the impurity of the Witch’s Focus of Will. This is a good point to consider when focusing your own will!)
The Silver Bullet Amulet is for those who are focusing their intent in the elimination of evil in their lives: within and without. If you would like to learn more about the silver bullet, please visit the Silver Bullet Web page
