amulet |ˈamyəlit|nounan ornament or small piece of jewelry thought to give protection against evil, danger, or disease.ORIGIN late 16th cent.: from Latin amuletum, of unknown origin.

Amulets have appeared throughout history and across many cultures in an infinite variety of forms. Each has been invested with the hope or belief that it could somehow mediate on behalf of its owner. They are tiny embodiments of the anxieties we feel about our human frailties, their assumed powers often drawing on the dark arts of superstition and magic.
