Copper, Leather, Wood


Necklace length: 18 Inches; Pendant height: 60 Millimeters; Pendant width: 25 Millimeters


A fully handcrafted Rune talisman made from Red Oak with YOUR CHOICE of wood burned rune from the Elder Futhark (the magical set of 24 symbols used by the Germanic tribes of Northern Europe since before the Viking Era). Your oak pendant will be hung from 3mm wide brown deerskin Genuine Leather and clasped with a hammered copper s-hook. Pictured in this listing is the rune "Algiz" (also called Elhaz) which is often worn for protection.

In the photos you will find a picture to enlarge showing the name of each of the 24 runes of the Elder Futhark, along with the distilled concept relating to each ancient symbol. Each rune has an assigned phonetic value as well (if interested in ordering for that reason), relating to sounds that would have made up the language of Proto Northern Germanic (which pre-Viking age Scandinavians spoke before the formation of Old Norse). However like how today's language is formed like this: letters form word, words form sentence, sentence forms concept. With the runes it is different, as each symbol IS the concept. Those concepts were very important to the ancient Scandinavians and Vikings, primarily being carved into wood, stone, or bone for magical purposes and talismans.

So find a rune that speaks to you in the photo, then select its name from the drop-down menu when ordering.

This necklace is super satisfying. The beads are heavy, the wire is strong. It really sits solidly around the neck. There are strings of beads in this price range all over Etsy without the solid findings in this necklace. The handmade clasps, the heavy wire. I agonized over my purchase (it was a gift) for far too long, and this was really beyond my expectations. Great craftsmanship.
