Talismans, amulets, charms have always been part of my life for the simple fact that I once was a child… and they are part of the childhood of humanity… They were a way to explain the world when there was no other way to do so… a way to ward off fear and dangers, something that gave comfort…

According to some, such objects are things that are carried around, that have a meaning to their owner, things you’d feel lost without… So in a way we still have those (and that fascinates me)… Your cell phone, your i-pod, your favorite handbag or jacket, even your favorite bra could be seen as talismans…

I think it’s the meaning and intention you put in an object that make this object special, even if it has been mass produced…

What I also like about these objects, it’s their soul, their history… lately I’m more and more aware of this… the things I handle have been in others hands before reaching mine… who were those people, what kind of lives did they live? And the bone, and the leather, they were part of a living being…

And those clothes I wear, somebody made them… who are they?  What was on their minds when they made them? What kind of soul did they put in those garments?

  1. Well then, I’m only about a year late…but I’m so happy to see your new blog and feel your sharing. The “Monster” is just amazing! I think you should make a little journal of the responses people have when they see you wearing it.
