Harry Dresden's pentacle amulet

Often worn as amulets, talismans are meant to convey magical and symbolical forces to the warer; great care has to be taken that their construction closely reflects the intended purpose of the talisman and their simbolism to be in synthony with the forces they are in communion with.[Footnote 1]
