Orthodox Amulets

The Orthodox Amulet ("filakto" in Greek) has a long tradition in the Orthodox Church, offering protection and blessings to the wearer.

In Christianity, Amulets are usually small in shape and contain either sacred relics or various ecclesiastical materials such as pure wood or holy myrrh. Like a small good luck charm, amulets protest against evil and are constantly used by the Christians. 

The handmade Orthodox Amulets in our collection include flowers from the Epitaph and cotton soaked in oil and myrrh from our Church.

"...After a very long day caring for my three grandchildren, my wife and daughter and I arrived home to find a very tidy, compact crate sitting on our doorstep. I felt as if I didn't want to open it at first, fearing I had possibly ordered the wrong thing or the item would be damaged. But,as usual, my wife Presbytera Elizabeth could not wait any longer and we both opened the crate. What a joy it was to see the font exactly as I had envisioned without one scratch or dent on it. Glory be to God! Your packaging was PERFECT and protected everything beautifully. I cannot thank you enough for caring for our humble needs in such a personal way. God bless you for your labors. I will sneak the font into the church so that everyone can share the surprise and joy upon seeing it for the first time. And thank your craftsmen who hammered and turned the copper so beautifully. Everything is beautiful! Thank you again and again...."
