Tiny talisman you can hold in your hand

Juli­ette Sallin, aka Gang of Frey­ja, is an illus­tra­tor and cut paper artist who works on a minia­ture scale. She’s recent­ly cre­at­ed a series of “pock­et tal­is­man,” which fea­ture styl­ized hands and paper flow­ers encased in small glass jars. The exquis­ite cre­ations are small enough to fit between two fingers—and put in your pock­et for good luck. “I like to think of my paper cuts as tiny trea­sures that reveal a secret we all car­ry deep inside,” she says. “[That] our innate rela­tion­ship with our world is light­heart­ed and sen­su­ous.”

The Gang of Frey­ja has a spe­cial mean­ing to Juli­ette. “Accord­ing to the Norse mythol­o­gy,” she explains, “Frey­ja is the God­dess of Love and Beau­ty. Her mag­ic is deeply con­nect­ed to the nat­ur­al realm, like her coat made of fal­con feath­ers that allows her to fly wher­ev­er she wants, or her neck­lace made of gold and amber that makes her irre­sistible.” Con­tin­u­ing, “Frey­ja is for me the embod­i­ment of an enchant­ed liv­ing, con­nect­ed with the envi­ron­ment and the mag­ic that per­vades every­thing.”

Juli­ette sells her work through her online shop. As of now, how­ev­er, these tal­is­man are avail­able through pre­order on Insta­gram.
