In my many years spent as a professional talismanic artist I have learnt that there is much more to talisman making than finding the right astrological election. It is not a race to the finish-line, or a crass game of catch and keep, but rather a slow and long courting ritual.
A dance of seduction.
For Millenia people have seduced the spirits with Art. Bodies writhed in dance, music made with mouths and hands, canvases caressed with wet loaded brushes, paper feverishly scratched with poetry. These are just some of the many ways for Art is multifarious.
The ways of the jewellery talisman maker are the ways of the Smith and the Sculptor.
