Rare and Beautiful Natural Wood Pendant *Wayfaring Tree* for Protection!

Featured in a fabulously foresty treasury celebrating one of Wordsworth's poems, curated by CraftyNellie here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/MTU5MDA1ODN8MTQ4MTIyMTE2MQ/thou-wanderer-thro-the-woods

This is a truly stunning and very unusual pendant made from the wood of a Wayfaring Tree. It has an uneven outline and there is a split from one side to the centre, although this in no way affects the strength of the wood as it’s incredibly hard and tough. The colour on one side is simply wonderful, a rich, warm red that’s entirely natural and gets slightly “muddier” towards the edges but has a real garnet glow at the centre, like tawny port. The other side is a more subtle mix of rich coffee shades, so you can not only vary it to suit your mood but you can match your outfit as well. The surface of the wood is silky smooth to the touch and eminently strokable, and I certainly think you’ll have a hard job keeping your hands away from it while it’s round your neck! The bark has been removed, so it can be safely sent anywhere in the world without falling foul of local customs restrictions. It's rare to see anything made from this type of wood, although it's a reasonably widespread hedgerow tree, so you can be fairly certain you won't meet anyone else wearing a similar pendant. I can’t tell you anything about the magical properties of this wood, but I do know that in prehistoric times the straight shoots were used as arrow shafts, which would suggest it could be used effectively in magic for protection, swiftness, focus, directness, or whatever arrows mean to you personally! (I also think you could have fun challenging any of your friends who reckon they know about wood to name the wood it’s made from… I would never have guessed what it was if I didn’t know!)

These undecorated pendants are popular with anyone who prefers to be a little more discreet about their beliefs and doesn’t always want pentacles all over everything, as they’re suitable for wearing anywhere and in front of anyone. 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. They also look great in multiples...

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.

Size: An inch and three eighths long, an inch and a quarter wide and less than a quarter of an inch thick.
35mm x 28mm x 5mm.

It will come with a picture and care instructions.
