Fascina are the Roman good luck charms to ward away the casting of a spell or 'fascinating' someone. In the shape of a phallus, they were a potent symbol for protection and were often given to children to keep them free of being charmed or fascinated.
This is a subtle little bead, in the middle of the bangle. You'll have to look closely to notice that it's a bit out of the ordinary. Those Romans, eh?
One fascina, four accent beads all handmade in 'antique clear' glass with silvertone accents on a silver plated copper bangle. Matching earrings are also available in the 'Earrings' section of the Jewellery department.
The bangle is approximately 7"
