After introducing talismans in our last post, we will delve into more detail about different forms talismans take and what they represent.
Each talisman has unique energy imbued in them. they are symbols that carry a message, a belief a philosophy. Here at Gazza Ladra, when crafting a talisman we start with the meaning first.
What ideas do we want to communicate, what values do we want to share, what message do we want to spread...and then we do our best to make the message look beautiful in a material form.
The moon is often associated with the feminine. This symbol represents the rhythm of time as it embodies a cycle. The phases of the moon create an ebb and flow in our seas and in ourselves.

Choose this talisman to unify your kinship with the night or to find more balance with the cycles of nature.

The eye has been used as a symbol of protection on our planet for thousands of years.
Across oceans, continents, cultures, and religions, from the ancient Egyptian Eye of Horus to the all-seeing eye of providence in Christianity.
The eye symbolizes protection, power, and good health. Ancient Egyptian and Middle-Eastern sailors would frequently paint the eye symbol on the bows of their vessels to ensure safe sea travel.
Still today in many parts of the Mediterranean and the Middle East, the eye symbol is worn to ward off “the evil eye” or the jealous energy other people may send your way.
A clear link to your loved ones, the earliest record of a heart talisman dates back to the ancient Indus Valley Civilization and it became more popular in Europe during the middle ages.
