Charm Catchers offers hand-made goods to accentuate your yard or living space. Each unique design offered offers something for everyone—really letting your personality shine. Here are our top five picks that truly peaked our interests (what we really just want for ourselves).
The OM Buddha Charm, a Catcher Bell which exhibits a “tierracast” metal piece with the word “Namaste” emblazoned over its plane. Suspended below is the 11/2” x 1” Pewter Guardian Bell. A depiction of a jolly, sitting and smiling Buddha is prominent on one side, while the other side displays the visage of a lotus flower, with an”OM’ symbol etched inside. This charm has nine Swarovski crystals, purple in translucent appearance, and with four clear crystal with butterfly designs cast inside. This charm is said to bring positive energy to your immediate space. Charms such as these have a significant cultural influence and use. They have been rung over many generations to banish evil spirits from ceremonies and funerals. The charm is considered to be culpable to bringing your living space closer to the feng shui ideal.
The Chakra Charms are stunning—if you like very pretty and colorful things. These charms have multi-colored eggs hanging from weather resistant stainless steel. Just above the bulbous base is the chakra stones. These Chakra stones vary in color with each separate charm—no two are identical. These charms are around a half an inch in length, and cast magnificent colors when light plays upon them and refract from their prismatic outcasts. The Root Chakra is red, and is said to derive power from the earth herself, and connects us with our flesh. The Sacral Chakra is orange, and relates to astrology as being representative of the Zodiac, Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio signs. Our next favorite is the Throat Chakra, a blue egg pendant, and represents the strong will of an individual, the power of decisive call-to-action.
The Golden Fairy Charm is made of a pewter cast, depicting an elegant fairy holding a round and dangling pendant. This is the kind of imagery that sells a MidSummer’s Dream kind of feeling. This charm is meant to cast away misfortune, illness, evil, and to lend happiness to the owner of the fairy charm. The charm itself is about a half and inch in length. The length runs around eight inches. The words “follow your dreams,” is written along the pewter’s side. Along the
top string are Swarovski crystals, and accented by Czechoslovakian bicones. And like all other charms comes with a velvet pouch for safe keeping when not left out for display.
The Upright Dragon pendant charm catcher has a half inch pewter cast of a dragon. It’s tail grasps the scarlet red round pendant below—a hand-blown friend stone. While the mouth of this pewter beads hangs by a descending line of Swarovski crystals. No two of these pendants are alike, especially considering the friendship Balls are all hand-blown. You can get two of the same, and share them. You can say that’s the perfect gift for a close friend or relative. Colors may vary, but that only adds to the unique charm of each piece.
And finally, we have the Nautilus Charm Catcher. The Nautilus design is hypnotic in a way, with a stunning use of negative space. The cast of this Nautilus is made of pewter, like the rest of the charm casts. Each Nautilus holds a purple, or “lavender” hand-blown friendship ball (also known as a Kugel). Swarovski, bicone, crystals run up and down the rust-free wire. This pendant is said to shoo away misfortunes, bad vibes, and let the light of the earth into your living space or fairy garden. This pendant can be used inside or out, so lighting up even a small room is as easy as hanging this Nautilus near a window, letting the sun play open the pewter, the light to sprinkle your walls as it is cast from the kugel.
