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.

Empress (Venus in Taurus), Series, Talismans + ReliquariesClassic Picatrixian style talismans. Malachite eggs, prayed over, fumigated, and subtly etched with Venusian symbols, imagery, and glyph during the height of the Empress Election. These can serve as altar pieces or actual Yoni Eggs, if the user decides they are suitable. More information in the toggle below. IMPORTANT: Absolutely do NOT use internally if you are pregnant, or wish to become pregnant. Only 1 Malachite Empress Egg is being offered to the public, $777 [spb_blank_spacer height="30px" width="1/1" el_position="first last"] [spb_toggle title="On the potential toxicity of malachite due to copper" open="false" width="1/1" el_position="first"] Some online sources claim malachite to be toxic because of its copper content, but that primarily impacts those involved with its mining and polishing (who should always be wearing protective gear on the job). Finished malachite poses almost zero risk to the user/ wearer, save for the case of prolonged exposure to acidic environments where trace amounts of copper can be leeched, which has resulted in fear mongering around even the consumption of Moscow Mules because of lime juice in the beverage. I have yet to know a single person who has been sickened or died of Moscow Mule poisoning, or been negatively impacted by the copper leaf that features in many Venus oils and materia. Copper is considered by science not to be meaningfully absorbed through the skin (if at all), and it is an essential trace metal found in lots of foods and things we regularly consume. Malachite is featured in some online lists of Yoni Eggs to avoid due to the same issue — the presence of copper combined with the naturally acidic environment of the vagina. Copper IUDs have been used as a common contraceptive since 1967, because copper naturally inhibits how sperm cells move so they cannot reach the egg and result in pregnancy. This makes even more sense of copper as the metal of Venus, given that our Fair lady desires sex for fun, rather than procreation (that would be Luna’s purview). It is up to each individual if they feel comfortable using the Malachite Yoni Egg Talismans internally or instead keeping them as altar pieces, and I encourage everyone to perform their own research, consult a physician, and do whatever they decide is safe with their own bodies, always. Given the short period of time such an egg is likely to be inserted (especially compared to up to 12 years of 24/7 wear with a copper IUD), these concerns seem overblown to me, personally. If you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, are sensitive to heavy metals, or have heavy metal poisoning, then do not use malachite internally. This same disclaimer/ contraindication is repeated on the Yoni Egg page. (This was only so in-depth because the issue was brought up in advance from a shared teaser, and we know how The Internet can be.) This non-controversy considered, no malachite was included in the standard 1/2 oz vial of Empress Oils, for those who still wish to avoid it. Malachite is the gem for Empress rollers. All of the malachite used in the Empress series is natural and undyed. [/spb_toggle]$777.00$777.00

“So be Wise as Serpents, and Innocent as Doves.” — Matthew 10:16
These relics are a visceral, ferrous expression of two primary principles observed within an occult framework : Salubrity and Resolve.
The Asklepian or ‘Rod of Asclepius’ consists of the serpent and staff. The serpent here may be said to represent both perpetual renewal & healing as well as the dual nature of pharmakon as both panacea and poison. The staff reminds us that in times of great need we must be willing to be supported. Their respective forms are expressed in hand-wrought iron, born of the hammer & anvil in flickering cacophony that is the ancient and venerable craft of the smith.
Some preparation of material took place the evening prior (cutting, layout, etc.) and final preparations were made during pre-dawn hours the morning of the election. Offerings of cedar, juniper, fir pitch and several native artemisia species were burned in the forge and a fumigatory rite of cleansing took place.
Enough material was cut and prepared for the 13+ relics to be forged, the serpent and staff to be officially intertwined during the beneficent interstice of this potent election. The election allowed a small but adequate window in which the work was to take place.
It was an intense fifty minutes. I can’t recall the last time I worked with as much vehemence, but I did manage to meet our goal. And not without some violence against my own corpus for as the work concluded, I fell into an intense bout of very unpleasant nausea and vomiting, swiftly (and mercifully!) followed by a deep sense of wellness. This speaks precisely to the often purgative, sicken-ing nature of pharmakon and again -- to the dual-nature of the serpent as an embodiment of wisdom and rejuvenation.
As for the iron Asklepians and their care, I recommend only this: while the relics have been treated with a thin coating of wax, I recommend that upon receipt they are further coated in the accompanying oil formulated by Sphere + Sundry during the election, or one of your choosing, preferably that lends itself to the restorative and health-giving nature of Asclepius and the noble art of physik.
I pray these talismanic objects of virtue serve in whatever capacity you desire, be they employed as ceremonial foci or by iron’s physical touch as a means of removing illness and dis-ease, thereby exploiting iron’s capability in the eradication of foul spirit presences afflicting both body and soul.Only 13 were forged. Offered for $130 each.$130.00

Mother Algol, Series, Sold Out, Talismans + ReliquariesThe design for these Gorgon talismans was inspired by the use of convex mirrors used to not only reflect, but refract negative energies, and provide wider survey in bagua mirrors typically placed above doors in Feng Shui.

The reverse side of the talisman is engraved with the planetary characters of the Sun as depicted in Arabic manuscripts of the Ghayat Al Hakim [Picatrix].Mr. Mack's preliminary findings —
The Sol in Leo talismans made space for a number of bird of prey synchronicities, beginning with a pair of hawks (the animal totem for the Sol in Leo series, featured upon The Golden Sovereign label) driving crows over my home in the morning hours following the casting (a scene which the talismans had a view of as they lay in a brass bowl under the sunlight post-casting).
My most immediate, embodied experience of the talismans was an awareness and correction of my breathing; which in turn reoriented my attention, put a bit more light behind my eyes and elevated my present experience - rather obvious; though I’d been unconsciously running on shallow breath, and I’d receive a nudge until this was remediated as I proceeded putting the finishing work/stone setting to the talismans.
In the days following the election I was contacted by a handful of clients, some familiar and some new acquaintances regarding not-explicitly-astrological metalwork; each of their projects connected either directly or indirectly to the Egyptian Horus. I'm thrilled with my experience with the Sol in Leo’s while they were at my bench, as well as with the opportunities that have presented themselves in their wake...Nine talismans are being offered to the public. Each comes with a 20” silver chain and arrives in a gold foiled and latched pendant box, marked by a golden wax seal featuring a Sun in Leo glyph for easy identification.
