Symbols and stones that call to the myths, journeys, and stories of the North
Select pieces are still available:
There are many layers of story here. Freyja is the Norse goddess of love, fertility, sexuality, and beauty. She reigns over seiðr, Norse magic, and is an archetype for shamans, seers, witches—those who walk in the realm of Spirit. She brought all of these ways from the heavens and has given them to humans, if they desire her path. She leads the practitioners known as völvas and traverses places of both peace and war. The center piece in this necklace symbolizes feminine essence and power. A piece of black banded agate that is dark but also warmly translucent calls to our inherent ability to push through the haze of murk and into clarity, in any place it is needed—we may call through the unknown to Freyja when we need support. Each of the two 'wings' contains a hawk and two feathers. Freyja is said to shapeshift into a hawk when she wears her cloak of feathers, and she gives them to others or flies to rescue those in peril, a sort of Valkyrie for the living. I created this necklace as a dedication to Freyja, and my hope is that its wearer is empowered by her ways.
A dagger to represent cutting through into the unseen, a realm always there on the other side of what we know, waiting for our journey into the places where mysteries wait. A subtle symbol of a wolf has been crafted into the pommel, the animal who represents wisdom in all of the worlds. Wolf has been placed into the Veil Piercer to be your guardian, and you may call upon him or her (your choice) when you need noble guidance on your path. The stone in the center is Pietersite, and this piece looks as if it has preserved flashes of ice for all times. Clear, sharp, rejuvenating blue, to support attuning the will in all endeavors.
Here in the Tree of Life Pendant, there are nine branches, for the nine physical, spiritual, and elemental worlds within the Norse mythos. There are two leaves, one to represent the necklace's wearer and one to represent Spirit, as we are always companions within and among the realms. No matter where we find ourselves on our journey, we can call on Spirit, Light, Love and there it will be. Three spheres of solid silver represent the three Norns, the weavers of fate and seers of destiny. The shield shape morphs into a bird at the bottom, the dwellers of sky and a symbol of freedom. Use this as a talisman for wherever and however you may exist among the cosmos of Yggdrasil.
Dreki means 'Dragon' in Old Norse—this piece was made in thinking of the dragons within Norse mythos that dwell beneath the World Tree. They are the creators of chaos, an energy whose potential is present always. Use this talisman to will calm, focus, and peace into places it is needed.
Pietersite is known as 'The Tempest Stone' and strengthens the mind during storms. I chose a red piece of this stone to call to the power of dragon fire.
