Talismans are objects created at specific times, or in specific ritual contexts — often both, for magical purposes. They are frequently made of metal and combined with stones, taking the form of rings or pendants, but they can truly be made of anything as long as the material is imbued with the right correspondences and they are constructed in a proper ritual context.

They are often used for protection or birth chart remediation, but can also be used to power spellwork or as charged altarpieces. In their simplest form, they are magical batteries that run particular energies for desired effects. They can be carried or worn upon one’s person, given to others as a gift, planted in areas you wish to effect, or used in any other manner you ritually or practically see fit.

Many of Sphere + Sundry talismans use a clay base, which allows for incorporation of sympathetic materials such as gold leaf or herbs, fast and easy molding, and the ability to write on or impress images easily. They feature gemstones of the right correspondences and are ‘cured’ during the heart of potent astrological elections before being stowed away to incubate for a full lunar cycle with the rest of the offerings in their series.

Our items are handcrafted during very tight timeframes in order to capture the best elections possible. This can mean that they aren’t as ‘flawless’ as commercially mass produced items often are, where anything less than perfection is discarded. These are magical items with potent effects, and some rough aspects of their formation in no way impacts their power or efficacy. We are forever trying to find the sweet spot between efficient and fast production so we can offer more items to more people at better prices, and highly polished aesthetic ideals.

Know that your piece will be literally one of a kind, and appreciate it for any quirks it has. Interestingly enough, these can help in the production and maintenance of Fascination, which produces gaze, touch, and attention that feeds talismanic objects and keeps them humming. It also draws their energy into your own, helping produce internal alchemical effects and allows you to ‘learn’ from your talisman on subtle levels. For this reason, limit exposure to malefic talismans, which can harm the body and the life. For particularly potent series, such as Algol, we actually conduct divinations before fulfilling orders. If the results are ill-omened, we cannot ethically ship the order and instead provide a full refund.

Store talismans away from light, covered, and in an appropriate venue befitting their station when not in use. Due to the nature of these items, refunds and returns are not accepted after shipment. We take the utmost care in producing ‘safe’, ‘clean’ talismans and objects, but know that even so, talismans can produce unintended or odd effects and bring a lot of specific magic to your doorstop. If you find the results displeasing or experience an excess of negative side effects, there may be compatibility issues between you and it or the forces it correlates to, or there may be an adjustment period. Feel free to get in touch if this is the case, or just generally to provide feedback and report on how one of our talismans has impacted your life or practice. We are always interested in people’s experiences and stories regarding our wares, which helps us improve future offerings.

    Jupiter’s Lightning Bolt Talismans

    , , , ,

    16 talismanic lightning bolts were forged by Marcus McCoy of Troll Cunning Forge, quenched in an oil infused with lightning struck wood, fulgurite, and anvil dust. Of his creation, Marcus offers —

    Haephestus was the blacksmith that helped forge Zeus’s lightning bolts. When metal is heated it becomes mutable and receptive, being in a semi-liquid state, and when it is cooled in oil or water it becomes fixed. Using alchemical techniques taught to me by Alchemist Robert Bartlett, the astrological election and the contents of the quenchent (lighting struck wood, fulgurite and anvil dust) were crystallized to create talismanic steel lightning bolts of Jupiter.

    Each lightning bolt includes a 1/2 oz vial of said quenching oil to charge their talisman.

    Dream Reliquary Boxes

    , ,

    Real moss covers the floor of these beautiful reliquaries, which contain a Lunesta moth as the primary centerpiece, assisting in spirit and astral flight. A whole silk cocoon, the worm still within, represents dream incubation. Includes sympathetic herbs, mushrooms, shells, saltwater pearls, and a phrenite crystal. Starfish decorate the top glass panel, as a representation of the stars above, but also the oceans below, facilitating liminality via inversion.

    These were created the day of the working before being ritually consecrated, suffumigated, and sealed during the Moon-Neptune election. They enhance dreaming, astral travel, and magical sleep.

    These works of esoteric art are intended to be set upon a bedside table, or if space is a concern, under the bed. They can be used by candlelight as meditative aids, and pens for glass writing can be used to mark the panels with temporary words, images, or sigils, should the owner have specific intentions regarding their dream-works. The top is not permanently sealed, so the client can make their own additions to the interior.

    Three reliquaries were made, 2 are being offered to the public. Due to their delicacy, these will be shipped “fragile” mail class and are only available to those in the continental USA. Includes a bottle of the Moon-Neptune oil and large 2oz water.

    Pisces Moon-Neptune Dream Catchers

    , , , ,

    Three unique dream catchers were handcrafted on the full Pisces Moon by Jason Potts, a local craftsman heralding from the Cow Creek Umpqua tribe. Jason was 15 when he first asked his father to teach him the art of weaving dream catchers, and it remains his passion to this day. Asked about his understanding and approach, Jason offered —

    The Sioux Indians believed that the night air contained good and bad dreams. They also believed that spiders were a representative or symbol for dreams and dreaming. Dreamcatchers act as a spider web, catching the bad ones, and letting the good ones flow down the feathers and into the head of the dreamer. They are circular because circles are sacred, representing unity and having healing powers.

    My process is simple. I meditate on the person or intention behind each dreamcatcher and feel for a design and pattern, and choose the materials based on what comes through. I then proceed to tie and string the beads, connecting my hands with my thoughts and prayers for the receiver to have good dreams. Every catcher is unique and the design comes into being based on the person who will be using it. After they are complete, I smudge them with sage and pray for good health and good dreams.

    My mission is to promote healthy sleeping and healthy dreaming. Our dreams are our way to speak to our inner consciousness and with a dreamcatcher one can receive the proper dreams needed to so.

    These dream catchers feature real pearl, silver and glass beading, and leather ties. Each one has a unique design and different feathers. Hang over the bed of yourself or a loved one that you wish to protect from bad dreams and night terrors.

    1. The main offering image is of the dream catcher with pheasant feathers, blue and white beading, seashell beads and dangling pearls.
    2. The second dream catcher in the gallery has long emu feathers, and moon beads with green, blue, and white beading.
    3. The third dream catcher in the gallery has turkey feathers, the broadest center area, seashell beads, and two tones of blue, white, and green beading.

    Specify your chosen dream catcher by feather type.

    Pisces Moon-Neptune Talismans

    , , , ,

    Tony Mack returns for another collaboration, this time for the Moon-Neptune in Pisces series, the election adjusted per his location.

    Lost-wax cast in fine silver. Modeled in carver’s wax after an ancient Greek coin depicting the god Triton, son of Poseidon and messenger of the sea, circa 370BC. Slight modifications were made so we could offer mer-talismans in lad and lady varieties.

    On the reverse side of the image, a circular setting was carved. Within is blue lotus, oyster mushroom, and other herbs sent by Sphere + Sundry, featured throughout the rest of the series for greater cross-sympathy. A mother of pearl cabochon setting was then applied.

    Our smith, on the effects he noted working with the talismans —

    They are like keys or portals to the realm of dreams. I still get the intense dream recollection while in waking state. For me it’s mainly of places I was in past dreams. I just kind of sink into these dimensions. It’s been going on consistently since the talismans were cast.

    I would definitely encourage people to keep a journal or something to write with/on handy when they wear and experiment with these. I’ve recovered and anchored an immense amount of otherwise hidden/unconscious experience, and there’s something very healing about that.

    Another thing I’ve noticed is that they are a damn good visualization aid; it’s really easy to conjure up images and sensations, and that’s very useful.

    Available in two forms… of two forms —

    Merlady: 8 necklaces and 9 coins (sold out)
    Merlad: 5 necklaces and 7 coins

    Coins can be put under the mattress or in a pillowcase and are available for $297, necklaces can be similarly stashed or worn around the neck to enhance psychic sensitivity, visionary work, etc. for $360.

    All talismans from this series include a vial of Moon-Neptune oil for regular feeding and consecration, and come in a leatherette box decorated with a Full Pisces Moon ritual symbol. Pendants include a 20” silver chain. You may choose to include a silver and gold polishing cloth.

    Rod of Asclepius Talismans

    , , , , ,

    Goldsmith Tony Mack collaborated with Sphere + Sundry during the equivalent election in his location to create a stunning set of talismanic snake bound Rods of Asclepius. They feature high grade carnelian set over viper’s tongue, frankincense, and sage, cast in silver. It just so happened that he made 13, a number he did not previously know was associated with Ophiuchus. Our goldsmith reported two weeks after the Work was done:

    I’m starting to notice some effects from the staffs on myself. I’ve been getting up way earlier than usual with a lot of energy. Also some inflammation I’ve had for months started to disappear.

    Wear on your person for healing and to help transmute poison into medicine. These are helpful for preserving health and warding away disease, but can also be used by those who have an ongoing health struggle or are taking medications that produce negative side effects. These are wonderful to wear if you work in a healing profession and want to bring the Divine Physician’s blessing into the realm of your client or patient work.

    Each talisman comes with a silver chain in a beautiful box hand decorated by Tony. It includes a bottle of Asclepius anointing oil, recommended times for feeding and empowering your talisman, and a prayer to Asclepius.

    Smaller 4ct carnelian pieces for $429 are sold out. Ornate 24ct carnelian with snake backing, herbs and viper’s tongue inlaid into the bezel for $729 are also sold out.

    If you would like an Asclepius talisman in the future, please make your selection and sign up for the Waitlist below. Getting a sense for demand will allow us to cast another run sooner rather than later.

    Lion-Heart Regulus Talismans

    , , ,

    Golden clay rolled with genuine 24k gold leaf, cut into disks. Imprinted on one side with the form of a lion and a heart of garnet, and the seal of Regulus on the other. Cured in boiling water with mugwort and mastic at the height of a supremely fine Regulus election with the fixed star conjunct the moon on the MC while Jupiter, the co-ruler of Regulus, was rising.

    These talismans when worn on one’s person produce a Kingly disposition, a warm, generous, and noticeable presence, and a charismatic field. They draw good luck and the attention/ favor of powerful or important individuals. Regulus talismans are good for uplifting the spirit and elevating the mind, and can provide assistance in matters of healing and achievement on all levels. They help facilitate cohesion and wholeness of being and have the pleasant side-effect of quelling anxiety.

    Only three Regulus discs were crafted during this election. They are being reserved for box sets, two of which are being offered to the public.

    Join the waiting list below to be notified of when future Lion-Heart Regulus talismans are being offered standalone.

    Eye of Algol Talismans

    , ,

    Black clay filled with freshly harvested black hellebore and molded into a three dimensional vesica piscis during the New Moon in Taurus conjunct Algol, 2018. Red clay was then inlaid to create an iris, and finally, a genuine diamond (the stone attributed to this fixed star) was installed as pupil. Cured with Helleborus leaf in boiling water while Algol rose in the East, and quickly engraved with Algol’s seal. They were then locked away in a box hand pyrographed with the head of Medusa to incubate for a full lunar cycle, along with the rest of the series.

    These Algol Eyes feature a hole through the center, meaning they can serve as standalone talismans or as beads. Each Eye includes one of the toothpicks used to create and maintain these holes, which carry quite a charge on their own and can be applied in any manner usually reserved for nails, thorns, or pins.

    Algol talismans can be used to provide powerful protection against the evil eye or to defend oneself against various malefactors, both human and discarnate. They can also be used offensively to dominate, bind, and weaken a given target, for Athena’s shield served dual purposes. It is, however, the creator’s opinion that the New Moon phase of Algol (this series) is better for works of aggression and offense, whereas the Full Moon phase is better for protection. Algol is the most notoriously malefic fixed star and should be treated with the utmost respect. These talismans, and all other artifacts from this series, should be covered when not in use. Basic instructions for a variety of applications are included with your order, to maximize results.

    Eleven Algol eye talismans were crafted during this election. Three are reserved for box sets and four are being offered standalone.

    Please note that due to the particularly malefic nature of Algol, divination is being done on all orders placed for this series. If the results are ill-omened, we cannot ethically fill your order, and you will be refunded in full for any Algol items in your purchase.

    Algol Box – Complete Set

    , , , , ,

    Wooden boxes with sliding latches were painted during the night of the New Moon in Taurus conjunct Algol. Painted black on the outside with no distinctive seals, both for discretion and to stow away the bulk of Algol’s charge when not in use, the inside is bright red.

    The ‘ceiling’ of the box features an Algol seal, so as to represent the fixed star looking down from the heavens, and also to serve as a meditative aid while open and in use. The interior base of each box has a pattern denoting the constellation of Perseus, with a vesica piscis representing Algol’s position.

    Each box contains one Algol candle, one bottle of Algol oil, and one talismanic Algol Eye with accompanying toothpick, which can be used in the manner of any nail, thorn, or pin for the purposes of binding or maleficia. All of these items fit neatly inside the box, making for a complete set from the Algol New Moon 2018 series.

    Three Algol box sets are being offered to the public.

    Please note that due to the particularly malefic nature of Algol, divination is being done on all orders placed for this series. If the results are ill-omened, we cannot ethically fill your order, and you will be refunded in full for any Algol items in your purchase.
