Interested in what a talisman is? Well they come in many forms. Paper, wood, stone, bone, metal. Anything can be made into a talisman. It also does not need to be of any specific set of symbols. It can be just about anything. That being said I personally use wood as my medium and runes for my symbols of power. I make general talisman that examples of and the purposes of can be seen or a custom talisman suited to your needs.
I hand make every one, sanding, carving, painting and invoking is all my own work. No one helps me. This helps to ensure quality of construction, energy and runes going into them.
My generic runes are all flat rate. Once it gets into custom runes I try to keep it reasonable however if you want something for the whole house. It takes a much larger energy store and such to do so.
Below are examples of talismans and their purposes. Note pictures may not be best quality as low light conditions were present while photos were taken.
