Mărțișoare – March amulets

In Romania, the beginning of spring comes with a celebration in the first day of March.

On this day women from all over the country get a little gift called Martisor or March amulets.

It is about a red and white string from which a small decoration is tied. It is believed that the one who wears the red and white string will be strong and healthy for the year to come.

I have a lot of Martisoare for you girls. You only have to take what you like ;)
