An amulet is a magically empowered item that deflects specific energies or forces from the person wearing or carrying it. Usually amulets are protection from some kind of negative energy.
A talisman is a magically empowered item that attracts specific energies or forces to the person wearing or carrying it.
In European Witchcraft traditions, amulets are natural items or jewelry made with natural items (talismans were traditionally human made items). In these traditions, amulets protected and talismans projected.
Sometimes an athame is used to consecrate, charge, or empower an amulet.
