This set consists of:

-Staves made from North American black bear "finger" type bones.
-24 runes stained obsidian black (no wyrd- this is not really a rune per se, though many people like this recent addition to the set) . The futhark is traditionally a 24 rune set.
-A saddle brown drawstring deer skin carrying bag. The leather I used for this bag is supple "distressed" deer leather. It is soft to the touch yet durable.

This is what the runes & bag look like. Each piece in the set averages about 1 1/8 inches long. Each rune was carefully drilled into each bone and then stained . Not only are the rune staves attractive- they are *tough*. They require no special care.

Check out the badge on the front! It features a carved "Eiwaz" rune in golden tan and a small bear on a teal background. This patch was colored with spirit dyes and then hand sewn on to the front of the casting bag.

Would you like a high quality rune set by an experienced crafts person who actually works with runes? Want a great gift for someone that will clearly demonstrate your appreciation and respect?

If so, you've come to the right place! I have been making bone rune sets for over a decade. I guarantee you will not find a higher quality rune set by *anyone* on Etsy for your money. This is not a toy- it's a spiritual tool that is meant to be used by someone who is serious about connecting with the runes.

All of the runes in my bone rune sets are carved right into the staves. There are no "pre-cut" parts in my rune sets. They are not mass produced with saws & jigs. Every set I make is done individually. The badge on the front is truly one-of-a-kind. The rune and the frame were carved and tooled. There is a small bear stamped in the center of the rune. This emblem was colored with brushed on *spirit dyes*. Spirit dyes won't crack like acrylics can, and they are *much* less vulnerable to moisture than water based dyes. .

*US shipping *includes insurance*- A few extra bucks buys all of us peace of mind! Any left over shipping can be either returned to you, or applied as a credit during future purchases. Please contact me if you have questions about shipping not answered in this post.
