The Keep Your Heart Strong Charm, inspired by the gorgeous Ben Howard Song, Keep Your Head Up, is intended as a protective amulet about staying centered and having faith in yourself and your own inner strength. Carry this charm around with you as a reminder of it's mantra. It comes with a little note inside it's Spaceform eliptical box packaging, showing that it is made in Britain and explaining it's intention.
The idea of our charms is inspired by Japanese Omamori, which is traditionally found by Japanese shines, intended to hold a prayer inside. The presence of the saint engraved out of the wood is a nod to tradition and gives a real sense of spirituality.
The craft behind the work is made of sheet acrylic and the Saint element is made of high quality 100% natural Birch plywood from the UK and FSC certified. 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.
