Fortune Talisman


The Amish emigrated in the 18th century from Europe and settled in the American Federal State of Pennsylvania - they emphasize family and community values and lead a live in seclusion from the outside world. This fortune talisman is worn by the Amish to attract luck and a positive fate in life. The term talisman originates from the ancient Greek word teleo which means "to initiate" or "to magically charge".
This pendant is made of copper and brass with a framing made of pewter. The framing of this piece of jewelry is made of pewter, since pewter is a shiny, soft metal which is very malleable and has a good tarnish resistance. The brass, a copper zinc alloy, is responsible for the yellow golden parts of this pendant and the copper for the red golden ones. With the exception of gold copper is the only colored metal and just like silver and gold it is classified as a precious metal.

About us Arrow, Mist (Page: Fortune Talisman) [136 x 22 px]
A main focus of our jewelry collections are magic symbols which are made according to historical artwork. Although a lot of people (like us) appreciate the beauty of the different designs and used materials, only few think about the deeper symbolism of these pieces of jewelry. In our modern world we see so a many different beautiful and decorative items that we usually only enjoy their beauty without considering the deeper meaning or the origin of the used motives and without knowing for what reason these items were formerly used. In our online shop we want to give answers to these questions by offering accurate background knowledge and additional information about every piece of jewelry in our collection.
Jewelry always had various functions which changed during the course of time: Because of the precious materials that were often used for its design it often was a valuable asset and sometime was even used as a currency. But especially in ancient cultures the spiritual meaning of a piece of jewelry was always important and the different motifs were symbols for the affiliation of its wearer to and his status in a social group. Furthermore jewelry can also serve a practical purpose like this is the case with safety pins, belt buckles and brooches.
Since jewelry is such a diverse cultural asset the meaning of a given piece can depend on the point of view and beliefs of its creator. For example many cultures developed pieces of jewelry showing to others whether its wearer is married or single: In our Western world these are the wedding rings while in African countries e.g. special bracelets or necklaces are worn for this purpose. Whether we are talking about weddings jewelry or talismans and amulets that were used for protection - often the decorations and materials determine the symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry.
Besides the various symbols and designs different cultures use for their pieces of jewelry also a variety of materials are deployed in jewelry production. At the beginning of mankind primarily pearls made of wood and bones and shells were crafted to pendants, since these rather soft materials could easily be processed and were readily available. Later on especially precious metals like gold and silver and various gems were used for valuable jewelry. Today the selection of materials available for the production of jewelry is especially large and various.
