Talisman's are typically objects that humans alter or adorn in some way, then magically charge to achieve a specific spell purpose. Talismans are crafted in exact ways. They can be hung anywhere. Before working with amulets or designing talismans read grimoires that document the age - old powers of objects. Make a mojo bag to hold tiny, but potent, amulets or talismans. You can always change the contents at will depending on your need. A good way to dive into amuletic magic is to make a portable spell kit that you can get to easy. Examples to put in your kit include the following: A black and white tiger - striped scarf to use as a layout cloth. A tiny spiral seashell, which represents the Goddess. A black shark's tooth, which represents the God. Colored birthday candles, with holders for standing them up in dirt or sand. Matches and a striker. A packet of black Witches salt and a packet of white table salt. A vial of amber and a vial of patchouli essential oil, representing women and men respectively. A compass to determine the Four Quarters. A piece of black and a piece of red hemp string for knot magic. A micro-sized Ouija board complete with a tiny planchette. A scallop shell and a packet of sand, to combine and use as an incense burner. Cone incense. Several small lids or cups to serve as libation bowls or chalices. A vial of water and a vial of wine. A tiny pocket knife to serve as an athame. Two toothpicks is inserted into a bead's hole, it makes a diminutive magic wand- the dark star becomes a blasting rod, and the light star, a blessing baton.
