INSPIRED BY… THE DRAGON’S EYE

The dragon’s eye talisman is a well-known, universal amulet of protection. It is an ancient Germanic symbol said to protect anyone who recited the incantation to it.

INSPIRED BY… THE EVIL EYE

It was thought that being on the receiving end of the stare was enough to cause illness or death. To protect against the stare, people wore the evil eye as a talisman to protect against evil forces. The hamsa is... Read More
