Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with Inspirational Talismans by Pyrrha

The American federal holiday that takes place this long weekend celebrates the birthday of the late Martin Luther King Jr. on January 15th…

It is celebrated on the third Monday of January each year and since our neighbours to the south often visit Whistler during this long weekend, it keeps Martin Luther King Jr. fresh on our minds. As a passionate civil rights advocate and activist, he was inspirational to millions of people all over the world. So, we thought we’d highlight a few perfectly inspirational talismans by Pyrrha to commemorate him for his special day:

1) Fearless Talisman

The Fearless Talisman is a sterling silver necklace that features a gryphon on it.

The gryphon is a symbol of death defying bravery. These chimerical creatures are said to possess the ideal combination of swiftness, strength, and intelligence. Pyrrha talismans are cast using authentic wax seals and imagery from the Victorian era. With symbolic meaning culled from heraldry each piece is designed to inspire the wearer. Handcrafted in Vancouver, Canada.

2) True Friendship Talisman

The True Friendship Talisman by Pyrrha is another sterling silver necklace, this time featuring a dove.

The dove featured on this talisman is a symbol of peace and trust. Beneath it is the Latin inscription ‘Amicitia Sine Fraude’, which means ‘Friendship Without Deceit’.

The stunning sterling silver Dragon Talisman is a powerful talisman with a fierce reminder.
