Natural Wood Pendant *Birch/Berkano* Unique Runic "Secret Sigil" Design!

This is a Runic Secret Sigil pendant, made from a pretty piece of Birch wood. It has the rune Berkano, which stands for the Birch Tree Goddess, deeply burned into the wood of one side. I can mark any of the symbols you see in my shop onto the back of a pendant, but so far only the Ogham and Runic ones have made it as far as the shop. Unisex and immensely comfortable to wear, they make great gifts for almost anyone, and can of course be worn with the symbol showing if you so prefer.

This particular pendant is made from a tiny plank cut from the branch of a Birch tree. The tree in question grows on the boundary between my garden and the neighbour's garden, and every so often it threatens to touch the electricity cables running to both houses so it has to be trimmed back out of the way. It's beautifully spalted, showing a mix of warm pinky-peach shades as well as the palest buttermilk and storm grey. You can see at each end of the pendant that the colours go right through the wood. It's very lightweight and comfortable to wear, and sure to gain compliments wherever you go.

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 symbols marked on the back can be a constant reminder of your heritage and help you to invoke the powers both of the tree spirit and the symbol involved. 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.

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.

Birch is traditionally used for cleansing rites and driving out evil spirits. It is useful for matters concerning protection and healing, but its great strength is in rituals to do with birth, rebirth and renewal, or any kind of new beginning. It can be used in exorcism.

Size: Almost two and a half inches long, an inch and a quarter across and a quarter of an inch thick.
62mm x 31mm x 6mm.

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