A collection designed for those both beautiful and strong, the Armored Talisman series takes design inspiration from both ancient armor and the extraordinary silver crosses made and worn by the Tuareg people of North Africa. Each piece is meticulously hand fabricated from raw materials. Designs are etched by hand, the metal is then pierced and then they are hand sanded and polished for a unique finish.
For each piece purchased, $1 will donated to a fund that helps these people.

Clear Quartz is often called the "Stone of Power" and can help to amplify any energy or intention. Clear Quartz is said to protect against negativity, attune to your higher self, and relieve pain.Pyramids have an ability to amplify and focus the energy of one's intention. The Sacred Geometry inherent within any pyramid's design is what gives it the power within. The most powerful area in a pyramid is in the center, near the apex, so it can be helpful to focus your intention into this spot.

The Tuareg inhabit the Saharan regions of North Africa - Niger, Mali, Libya, Algeria and Burkina Faso. Tuareg is an Arabic term meaning abandoned by God. They call themselves Imohag, translated as free men. No one knows the true origin of the Tuareg, where they came from or when they arrived in the Sahara. Reputedly of Berber descent, the language of the Tuareg is Tamachek, with their own script known as Tifinagh, thought to have ancient Libyan roots. Their numbers are unclear, but estimates run between 300,000 and 1 million. The Tuareg were recorded by the Greek historian Herodotus in the 5th Century BC.

As with all hand crafted jewelry, you need to take special care of these pieces. Please do not wear your pieces while bathing, swimming, or during any other activity that would involve the piece getting submerged in water. Bones and stones can be porous, when wet they are weakened and therefore could break more easily. Metals can tarnish and lose their patinas more quickly if they get wet or washed with chemicals often. Also, please remove your pieces before any activities that may have you moving quickly or partaking in strenuous activities as they are fragile and parts could be knocked loose or fall out. Do your best to treat your jewelry like the unique piece of art that it is and it will remain in good condition for ages.
