They have Arrived! Will ship this coming week.
Our original design of our traditional 2-sided Cimaruta talisman, also known as the "Witch's Charm". Raven designed this particular version of the cimaruta and I was able to have them made after a very long hiatus.
If you want one now would be the time to purchase it one!
The word ‘cimaruta" means "a sprig of rue” and in olde times identified the wearer as a member of the Society of Diana, Queen of the Witches. This sterling silver talisman is a smaller design of our original and is now created exclusively for Raven’s Loft. The cimaruta bears the following symbols. Rooster-Head - dispels the forces of darkness Dagger - the arrow of Diana Crescent Moon - occult forces Serpent - cunning and wisdom Key - knowledge Vervain Blossom - protection (five pointed petals) To wear this talisman is to embrace the Old Religion of Pre-Christian Europe. Through the essence of the cimaruta, you align yourself with the Witches of Olde, carrying on a tradition kept for countless generations. Comes on a black cord , velvet bag and romance card. Measures 1"
