Description

Although the primary winter holidays have passed, the season certainly isn't over, and warm wishes of companionship and prosperity are always wonderful. Created with sincerity and intent, this piece was made to serve as a blessing for the wearer during the cold winter months.

The central bindrune is a combination of staves of the Elder Futhark invoking joy, wealth, material security, and relationships formed and strengthened through reciprocal exchange. Although not literally present in the bindrune itself, the presence of a fourth runic power is suggested in the birch bark texture of the leather background. Runes carry their own inherent potency, but their names were chanted (a practice known as galdr) as they were carved and reddened to further empower them. The four arms of the bindrune encourage stability.

The pendant is hand-carved, textured, and painted leather, hand-stitched to a swatch of deep crimson felt and set with a small brass eyelet. It's suspended from a brass ball chain and accented with an olive freshwater pearl, a pale green prehnite nugget, coral, and a textured cream glass pearl.

measurements • necklace is about 24" in overall length; pendant is approximately 1.75" wide by 3" long

materials • leather; felt; beads; waxed cord; brass ball chain; brass wire

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
My primary form of accepted payment is Paypal due to its ease of use. You do not need a pre-existing Paypal account to use Paypal, simply follow the prompts and you can use your credit or debit card through the Paypal system.

If you need to use a different form of payment, for example a money order or cashier's check, please send me an Etsy conversation and I'd be glad to discuss alternate forms of payment with you. Please note that I am only able to accept money orders or cashier's checks for US residents.

Returns & exchanges

At this time, I am not offering refunds or exchanges due to the unique nature of the items. If by some chance though you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me right away and I will certainly try to see what I can do to rectify the situation.

Shipping policies

I typically ship items on Wednesdays or Thursdays, but I will always try my best to get items shipped within 2 business days after the date of payment. I will ship to the mailing address listed on the PayPal invoice unless specifically requested otherwise. If the item needs to be shipped to an alternate address, please include it in the notes to seller section upon check-out.

My smaller jewelry items are shipped in a jewelry box which is adorned with beautiful yarn and/or ribbon making it suitable to give as a gift. This box is then placed in a padded envelope for shipping. Larger items, including most leather craft pieces, are wrapped securely in bubble-wrap and shipped in a small box. ACEOs are shipped in a clear plastic sleeve for protection and display purposes. I try to use recycled bubble-wrap and other packing materials if I am able to do so.

For Domestic (US) orders, I will ship via First Class USPS mail. Insurance is recommended for items over $20.00 US, please contact me if you would like to insure your package or if you would like expedited shipping. On some items, the shipping price already includes insurance for domestic packages, please view the item's description for more information as to if insurance is already accounted for in the shipping costs. International orders are shipped via First Class Airmail, and unfortunately insurance is not available for international orders.
