Small Angel Caller Llamador de Angeles Flores, amulet for protection.
ancient legend tells that before thousands of years some wood fairies
had to run away from the wood they lived, hence angels gave them amulets
for protection. Angels told them that at any moment when they feel
unprotected or in danger, they shall ring the bell and angels will be
there instantly to protect them.
Angel callers are known in many world’s cultures, including the Maya in Latinamerica, Indonesia, Mexico, Spain etc.
angel caller contains a small ball inside, and when shaked, it makes
gentle and calming sound, slightly different to each angel caller.
Another legend tells that this sound is magic, because it can attract
the Guardian Angel of the person that would protect and guide him
throughout person’s whole life. Therefore nowadays very often they are
worn by mothers-to-be to protect the baby, and when the child is born it
is passed to him or her as an amulet.
They usually are worn as
necklaces by hanging the pendant in a chain, a band or a ribbon
(pregnant women in a longer one, so that the angel caller is close to
the abdomen); they can also be worn as bracelets by attaching the
pendant to it or simply as an amulet to be kept in your bag, table,
special place in your home etc.
