Thy have long been seen as ‘lucky’ and are often strung up outside houses in a protective fashion or worn in a talismanic way as a necklace. They also are said to be a ‘key’ to see into other worlds, and some say they have protective and healing powers.
I collected these found Hagstones whilst beachcoming on Hayling Island in Hampshire and also on my mudlarking trips to the ancient Thames foreshore. When cast in metal they have a truly sculptural feel and are incredibly tactile to hold. They make a beautiful talisman, strung on a leather cord or on the chain provided.
