I was asked to create a protection talisman. A proper one. One that looked like it meant business. Of course I obliged.
The final touches are a pinch of spanish moss. Often used to stuff poppets and used in revenge spells, but here it's a warning: 'I am prepared to seek justice if necessary'. There's red cotton thread with intention tied in it's knots. And finally a hand-forged iron nail. Iron being a strong protective material that repells the magic of others and keeps the holder safe.
What would you add to your own protective talisman?
