Forbidden Pendants - AMirror of our Soul:
This "forbidden" pendant combines archetypical pictures with sigils and seals imaged in old grimoires to create a very special magic talisman. This way it is a key to our subconsciousness and even the word "forbidden" itself lures us to the more magic, mystic and darker aspects of our soul which we often, contingent upon society, reject as pure fantasy.
The Pendant Lamia:
According to old legends Lamia became the first female vampire who was able to transform herself with her evil witchpower into a bat - since bats, being the only nocturnal, flying mammals, have always been a symbol for the forbidden side of magic: Lamia was an old Greek Medusa who killed, skinned, dismembered and afterwards devoured the children of other mothers. Therefore this talisman stands for the darkness of our soul but also for the renewal arising from blood - the liquor of life.
Example of a Charging Ritual from an old Grimoire:
The sign you want to charge shall carry a pentagram so that its five points can establish contact to the elemental energies of fire, water, earth, air and spirit, thus protecting you from dark powers and keeping them away from the ritual itself.
Before casting the spell youll have to wear the sign for some time to get familiar with the pentagram's magic energies.
2. Preparatio (Preparation):
In a quiet room cover a table with a white tablecloth and keep ready incense cones or joss sticks, a white candle in a candle holder, a glass of water and a dash of salt.
Make sure you will not be disturbed and black out the room: Put the glass of water, the white candle and the incense in the middle of the table, then ignite the candle and the incense and place the sign next to them. Now close your eyes and meditate for some minutes over the meaning of the sign and thereby imagine its effects as clearly as possible.
3. Purificatio (Cleaning):
Move the sign through the smoke of the incense - thereby it is purified by the element air. Then hold it above the flame of the candle - thereby it is purified by the element fire. Now take a dash of salt, put it in the water and imagine how the glass is filled by a golden light. Sprinkle the sign with the water and imagine that it starts to shine golden too - thereby it is purified by the element water. Finally disperse some salt over the sign - thereby it is purified by the element earth.
4. Potestatem Facere (Charging):
Take a seat, close your eyes and hold the sign in your hand. Imagine a glowing sphere, consisting of shining white light, just right above you - feel the power and size of this sphere. Visualize a beam of golden light emitting from the sphere, going through your head right to your solar plexus, thus filling your whole body with this golden light which warms and strengthens you. Imagine once again the meaning and effects of your sign and let the light flow through your arm into your hand and from there into your sign.
5. Salvatio (Reorientation):
Recover for some minutes and take a meal or have a drink to lead your body back into this world. The magic charge of your sign will remain as long as you keep it within your aura.
6. Exoneratio (Discharging):
Your charged sign is a powerful symbol which is able to sometimes cause unintended strong changes. If this happens you can discharge it by putting the sign under running water for a couple of minutes while imagining the energy streaming out of it.

We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces of jewelry in our collection.
Since the beginning of mankind jewelry served several different purposes. Already before the invention of money it was for example used as a kind of currency, as a status symbol or as a valuable asset that even could be passed on to future generations. Many pieces of jewelry also had a functional purpose like it is the case with fastenings for clothes, safety pins and belt buckles. However, at a more spiritual level the jewelry also had a symbolic meaning, showed the affiliation to and the status in a social group, and was worn for the protection from evil or simply to show one's own taste.
On account of these many different purposes the meaning of single pieces of jewelry can be very different and depends on the belief and the point of view of the respective manufacturer. In some cultures, e.g., bracelets were used as wedding jewelry, like the wedding rings of today, in other societies necklaces served the same purpose. The symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry often cannot only be found in the piece itself, but also in its decorations or the used materials. In some cultures it is usual to give pieces of jewelry as a gift at certain important times in life which should emphasize the symbolic meaning of these events with the help of their decorations. These pieces were then often worn as amulets or talismans and were believed to protect and support its wearer during this new situation in life.
Besides the various symbols and designs different cultures use for their pieces of jewelry also a variety of materials are deployed in jewelry production. At the beginning of mankind primarily pearls made of wood and bones and shells were crafted to pendants, since these rather soft materials could easily be processed and were readily available. Later on especially precious metals like gold and silver and various gems were used for valuable jewelry. Today the selection of materials available for the production of jewelry is especially large and various.
Also the piece of jewelry on this page http://www.aval
