The concept behind our charms is inspired by Japanese Omamori, which is traditionally found by Japanese shines and intended to hold a prayer inside. The idea is that by holding and carrying a piece with you it acts as a sort of talisman to protect you with it's message. The I Love You Charm is designed to express love to someone of how much they mean to you and act as a protective prayer from you to them. It comes with a little note inside it's Spaceform eliptical box packaging, showing that it is made in Britain and showing more of it's intention.
The craft behind the work is made of sheet acrylic. We use the idea of fine marquetry and laser cutting and engraving and fit thinner and thicker elements so it has a really tactile quality and can be taken apart and put back together. Each element is perfectly inset into a small and slender box that is the amulet or charm itself. You can also thread a cord through the hole if your wish to tie it to the handle of your bag or hang it by your bedside on a hook if you prefer.
