The Great October Talisman Giveaway - Aidan Wachter

The "Wolf Moon" talisman will be going home with...

Kashmira 17

Congratulations, lucky duck!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The month is somehow half over already, and I have not gotten up to my usual amount of mischief. I still have some ideas up my sleeve, and there are more forest journeys to take, and moons to howl under. In the meantime I thought I'd shake up this bookish month with an extra special treat. My brilliantly talented friend Aidan Wachter has offered up a wicked talisman for your October pleasure.

This beauty, titled "Wolf Moon" is Aidan's nod to Circe:


I have several of Aidan's charms, and each one is wildly special to me. His craftsmanship is spectacular. As pretty as his photos are, there is nothing quite like seeing his work in your hands, and around your neck.

You can order any of his designs for yourself, here, or you can contact him directly about custom work. You might also want to leave a comment on this post, because on Tuesday, October 20th at 6pm Pacific, I will be giving this little bit of lunar wolfishness away.

1. I love Aidan's work. 2. I want this piece so bad. It is perfect as wolf is my spirit animal.

Maggie said...

Amazing work! Wolves are always welcome in my world!

Yasmin said...

I love this and will absolutely check out his other work! My son who has a strong connection with wolves would also love this :)

Erin Gergen Halls said...

I have been desiring one of Aidan's talismans for so long, now. Coveting! If ever there was a giveaway I would long for most...this would be it!!

Renee said...

Whenever I did something "unladylike" my mother would say to me "stop it. were you raised by wolves?" and I would say "yes. You." And we would laugh cause she knew I was right. Raised by a wolf mother who believed in full moons and pink sky as religion. OMG. I am in love with this piece. xo

Aidan does outstanding work on all his pieces! I wear his Peacock God amulet almost daily. I think it's wonderful that you're making this offering to your readers! :-D

Joel Champ said...

His work is amazing and beautiful! I think that anyone here would love and benefit from this talisman. This animal energy speaks to me personally but just the same, I appreciate that the two of you are offering this art work :)

I love wolves, so much so that a few of my closest friends have called me "Wolf" since high school. They're my totem (have been since before high school.) Aidan's work is amazing and this charm is absolutely stunning and wonderful!

Guinneth said...

Pick MEEEEE! LOL. You are both wonderful, generous souls. xoxo -JLL

I haven't bought anything from Aiden yet...but even through the computer screen I can feel the concentration of deep energy and the high charge of his work. This piece would need its own box to be stored in were I fortunate enough to be chosen.

I absolutely love this piece!!! I don't wear a lot of jewelry, usually only vintage pieces. I would certainly wear this!!! (were-able* charm)

Don Cunningham said...


i love Aidan's work. And sometimes a Wild God makes you sit up and notice...

Martha said...

I love Aidan's work and have several pieces. When I saw this design in his site, I knewit would be perfect for my dear friend, who has a wolf soul. I even contacted Aidan earlier this month to see if he had one of these already made so I could gift it next month when I travel to visit this friend. He didn't, so I'm savingy pennies and eyeing a future date. This opportunity is perfect, my friend's had some health problems and could use the good juju. *fingers crossed*

The Country Witch said...

Such a beautiful piece of work. I would love to own this and allow the wolf spirit within my soul to howl.

I am a lucky girl - already in the process of adopting my first amazing, powerful, beauty-filled talisman from Aidan. But oh-my-stars, how do you stop at one? His pieces are so striking, so unforgettable, so full of magic! Is it greedy to hope to win his Wolf Moon, too? ~sigh~ Fingers crossed! ~Cara
