I have a little talisman.
It was bought in Poland when I lived there and I wore it on a silver chain around my neck for a few years. If it wasn't on my chain I had it in my pocket, or my purse. I am amazed I haven't lost it.
Even in the coldest of weather it still feels warm. I love the softness of it, the tactile curves of this piece of amber that has been made from many smaller pieces. It can be milky white or black and fifty shades of yellow in between.
When I got married I stopped carrying it around with me. I had no need for it, but I kept it tucked away in my jewellery box. I rediscovered it recently, picked it up and was reminded how much I loved holding it. I popped it into my pocket. I then found something I could use to attach it to my keyring so it is with me most of the time. I don't need a talisman at the moment but I am warmed by it's familiarity and colour.
My little piece of prehistoric sunshine.

That's gorgeous! When we lived in Denmark, they said that after a storm you should look on the beaches for amber washed up. I often looked, but never found any! :/ReplyDelete
