Natural Wood Pendant *Alder* for Faery Magic!

This is a simply beautiful pendant made from a slice of Alder wood. The bark is intact around the edge and the rich dark brown forms a perfect contrast with the warm amber shades of the wood. Numerous yearly growth rings are clearly visible, along with the curious little dark specks that are technically referred to as "pith flecks" and are a defining feature of Alder wood. The rather odd shape means it hangs beautifully and it's cut nice and thin so it's feather light and won't make a groove across the back of your neck! :-)

These wooden pendants are popular with anyone who likes natural looking jewelry, and can function as a personal magic charm unsuspected by everyone else. 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. 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.

Made from organically grown and ethically gathered wood, 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.

Alder is said to be good for controlling and banishing elementals, especially of fire or water as the tree has strong links with both elements, and it can apparently be used for the healing of wounds. The tree is the guardian of the portal of the Faery Realm, and oversees all types of portals, boundaries and watersheds. It is allegedly attracted to water, so is used for dowsing. Legend has it that the Alder tree is a favourite of the Elven King's daughter. It is strongly associated with resurrection.

Size: Just over two inches long, an inch and seven eighths wide and less than a quarter of an inch thick.
53mm x 47mm x 5mm.

This item will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture and care instructions.

Please be aware that some countries do not allow the importation of any wooden items that still have the bark attached. It is up to you to ensure that an item is not in breach of the customs regulations of your country before you buy.
