Amulets on Flickr

One of the planned outcomes of the Small Blessings project is a dedicated website showcasing around 50 highlights of the several thousand amulets we are cataloguing.

The website won't be launched for a few months yet and there is still lots of research to do. However, we wanted to share with you some of the ones already chosen to feature, so you can now find them in the Museum's 'Amulet' set on Flickr.

Some are beautiful, some are curious, some are a little macabre. Which is your favourite?
