One of my exclusive Ogham "Secret Sigil" range of unique pendants. 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 Sigil". 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 particular pendant is made from the wood of the Pussy Willow tree that grows next to my pond. We pollard it every few years to maintain cover for birds and ensure that it doesn't get tall enough to blow over. We've just done it this year, so this wood must have been seasoning for at least two years. The piece of wood shows perfectly the fabulous colours and grain patterns to be found even in wood considered bland and boring by many. The silky smoothness of the surface just begs to be touched and I defy anyone to be able to wear one of these pendants without constantly stroking it. The perfect pendant to wear to honour the Moon Goddess, and especially useful to help increase your psychic energy during divination.
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 bunches. It would make a perfect gift for anyone born in the right month according to the Celtic tree calendar, but as they used a lunar calendar I’ll leave you to work out when that would be as it varies slightly from year to year!
Made from wood that has been organically grown and ethically gathered, 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.
Willow is a very magical tree that increases psychic energy, so it’s excellent as a general purpose wand. It is believed to share the essence of snakes. It is useful for magic concerning healing and fertility, and it is said to aid divination and bring inspiration. Its powers are strongest at night, under the moon.
Size: About an inch and three quarters long, an inch and one eighth wide and a quarter of an inch thick.
45mm x 30mm x 6mm.
This item will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture and care instructions.
