Forbidden Pendants - AMirror of our Soul:
This "forbidden" pendant is a key to our subconsciousness and even the word "forbidden" itself lures us to the more mystic, magic and darker aspects of our soul which we often, contingent upon society, reject as pure fantasy. In this pendant archetypical pictures are combined with seals and sigils imaged in old grimoires to create a powerful magic talisman.
The Pendant Thor's Hammer
This talisman was seen by the Vikings as a symbol for their highest god and his mighty powers and is said to grant strength, courage and success to its wearer: When the Nordic God of Thunder Thor was enraged, he dashed away his hammer, which found its target by itself, then smashed it to pieces and afterwards returned back to Thor. While flying the hammer sprayed thunderbolts, just like sparks are radiating when a smith smites his hammer on the anvil. This very special version of Thor's Hammer according to Viking belief symbolizes the exact opposite of the Nordic sun wheel: While the sun wheel is emitting merely positive energies thus bringing prosperity and plenty, this Thor's Hammer stands for all the negative energies capable of destroying enemies and obstacles with their power and might. Although these powerful energies can help to solve problems in your life and thereby are able to bring success, this version of Thors Hammer has been considered for a long time as a negative and therefore forbidden symbol.
Example of a Charging Ritual from an old Grimoire:
It is helpful if the sign you want to charge carries a pentagram - this way the five points of its star will bundle the energies of the elements earth, fire, water, air and spirit and keep away negative powers from the ritual thereby protecting you.
You should wear the sign for some time in order to get familiar with the magic powers of its pentagram before going on with this charging ritual.
2. Preparatio (Preparation):
In a quiet room prepare a table with a white tablecloth and take care to have ready a white candle with a candle holder, joss sticks or incense cones, a glass of water and a dash of salt.
Make sure you will not be disturbed and black out the room: Put the glass of water, the white candle and the incense in the middle of the table, then ignite the candle and the incense and place the sign next to them. Now close your eyes and meditate for some minutes over the meaning of the sign and thereby imagine its effects as clearly as possible.
3. Purificatio (Cleaning):
Move the sign through the smoke of the incense - thereby it is purified by the element air. Then hold it above the flame of the candle - thereby it is purified by the element fire. Now take a dash of salt, put it in the water and imagine how the glass is filled by a golden light. Sprinkle the sign with the water and imagine that it starts to shine golden too - thereby it is purified by the element water. Finally disperse some salt over the sign - thereby it is purified by the element earth.
4. Potestatem Facere (Charging):
Take a seat, close your eyes and hold the sign in your hand. Imagine a glowing sphere, consisting of shining white light, just right above you - feel the power and size of this sphere. Visualize a beam of golden light emitting from the sphere, going through your head right to your solar plexus, thus filling your whole body with this golden light which warms and strengthens you. Imagine once again the meaning and effects of your sign and let the light flow through your arm into your hand and from there into your sign.
5. Salvatio (Reorientation):
Take a drink or eat a meal in order to recover - this way your body is led back into this world. The sign will stay charged as long as you keep it close to your body.
6. Exoneratio (Discharging):
After charging you hold a very powerful symbol in your hands which can cause deep changes in your life. If the effect of the sign is undesirably strong you can discharge it by holding it under running water and imagining for a few minutes how the energy is leaving the sign.

We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces of jewelry in our collection.
Since the beginning of mankind jewelry served several different purposes. Already before the invention of money it was for example used as a kind of currency, as a status symbol or as a valuable asset that even could be passed on to future generations. Many pieces of jewelry also had a functional purpose like it is the case with fastenings for clothes, safety pins and belt buckles. However, at a more spiritual level the jewelry also had a symbolic meaning, showed the affiliation to and the status in a social group, and was worn for the protection from evil or simply to show one's own taste.
On account of these many different purposes the meaning of single pieces of jewelry can be very different and depends on the belief and the point of view of the respective manufacturer. In some cultures, e.g., bracelets were used as wedding jewelry, like the wedding rings of today, in other societies necklaces served the same purpose. The symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry often cannot only be found in the piece itself, but also in its decorations or the used materials. In some cultures it is usual to give pieces of jewelry as a gift at certain important times in life which should emphasize the symbolic meaning of these events with the help of their decorations. These pieces were then often worn as amulets or talismans and were believed to protect and support its wearer during this new situation in life.
Not only the used symbols and decorations differ strongly between the cultures - a huge number of different materials were also used in the course of time. In the beginnings especially shells and pearls of wood and bone were used, because these natural materials were readily available and could easily be processed. Later the precious metals silver and gold became more and more important and also the use of precious stones increased. Nowadays all possible materials are used to underline the meaning of a piece of jewelry even further thereby creating pendants and other jewelry that could not be designed using traditional materials.
