We sometimes talk about magical protection in the Romani culture. If any people know about this the Banjara Gypsies do. Some of the excessively heavy jewellery, sometimes complete with bells, mirrors, silver, gold and colour is designed to ward off evil spirits and bad vibes. The theory is, if it jingles or blinds everyone, bad spirits and shadows won't get a look in. And quite right too! I've been writing about the ins and outs of this today in the forthcoming book, out in spring: how we can apply such magic today where drainers and vampiric personalities are concerned, and exactly what the jewellery, bells, mirrors and colours represent and how they help on an otherworldly and practical level. It's quite a subject, and all kushti stuff.
