My "Secret Sigil" range of unique pendants has finally hit the shelves, so to speak! The Ogham symbols corresponding to the tree which furnished the wood for each pendant is burned into the wood at the back, in the same way that Ogham was marked along the edge of stones so there is no centre line, which makes them less obvious than when the symbols are marked in the usual way... hence the name "Secret Sigils". At a recent Witchcraft Fair I attended these proved by far the most popular items on my stall, and I can't make as many as I'd like because I only choose the most beautiful pieces of wood for them, although I'm hoping to make them a regular feature of my Etsy shop.
This pendant is made from Apple wood, and is stunningly beautiful to look at. It's quite small and cut very thin, so it's feather light... when you wear it you won't even know it's there. The surfaces are all strokably smooth to the touch and the rich colours and strong grain patterns are fascinating to look at. Wear it to prove yourself "faery friendly" while you prepare the garden for this years' planting and invite the spirits of growing things to help you achieve a bumper harvest. It might even enable you to catch a glimpse of a Unicorn! (I'm afraid I managed to forget to take a photo including coins for scale, but the measurements are further down.)
These "Secret Sigil" pendants are popular with anyone who prefers to be a little more discreet about their beliefs and doesn’t always want to wear anything too overtly pagan. On the most simple level they're a lovely way to carry a piece of nature with you throughout your day, and if you choose the wood type for the magical qualities you require and wear it with intent, then a pendant like this one will surround you in a bubble of sacred space and envelop you in its subtle influence. The Celtic Ogham symbols marked on the back can be a constant reminder of your Celtic heritage and help you to invoke the powers of the tree spirit. If you don’t want to wear it then you can carry it in your pocket or just hang it somewhere in your home or car, and they also look great in multiples. It would make a perfect gift for anyone born in the right month according to the Celtic tree calendar, but I’ll leave you to work out when that would be as it varies slightly from year to year!
It has been finished with a light coat of oil and will come strung on a waxed cotton cord, so it contains no animal products or metal parts.
Apple is probably the best choice for any kind of fertility spells, or any magic to do with increase, plenty or abundance. It is a good protector of the home and cultivated land, and is said to be good for gardening magic. Traditionally, the home of the Unicorn is said to be beneath the Apple tree, and it is also where he is most easily caught. Legend tells us if a pure young woman sits quietly under an Apple tree, the Unicorn will come and gently lay his head in her lap and allow her to feed him apples.
