Naturally Colourful Wood Pendant *Elder* Enhances All Magic!

This is a stunning pendant made from the wood of an Elder tree. It’s made from a slice of a branch that has had the bark removed as Elder bark will not stay attached as the wood seasons. The hole the cord goes through is entirely natural and marks where the soft fluffy central pith was removed. The wood has seasoned to a fabulous mix of mellow earthy tones that go right through the wood and even cover the edges and it is silky smooth to the touch. I must stress that all the colours and patterns are completely natural and provided by the Goddess herself, I haven't added any stain, ink or dye. As it's basically a wood donut, you can have endless fun swizzling it round on the cord, trying to decide which bit to leave covered up. :-) This pendant would be perfect to wear to honour the Crone aspect of the Goddess and will give a boost to any of your magical undertakings. It is also so beautiful that even non-magical folk will be asking you questions about it!

These undecorated 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. 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. It would make a perfect gift for anyone born in the right month according to the Celtic tree calendar, but I’ll leave you to work out when that would be as the Celts used a lunar calendar so 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.

Elder is the retreat of the Elder Mother, powerful matriarch of the hedgerows, woods and semi-wild places. She is the one who takes revenge on the despoilers of the countryside, and you cross her at your peril. It is said that you should never burn Elder wood on your fire, or the Elder Mother will burn your house down in retaliation. The wood of the Elder tree is especially highly charged magically, and can add power to any magical undertaking. Along with Hazel, it is said to be one of the best woods for wands. It is seen as a threshold tree, guarding portals to other realms, and legend has it that it never gets struck by lightning. It is believed that an Elder stick will kill serpents and drive away robbers, and the twigs have been carried during wedding ceremonies for good luck. It can be used for protection or exorcism rituals, and to bring healing, prosperity or sleep. It is particularly good for making women more sexually attractive to men, and for increasing the male libido!

Size: An inch and a quarter by an inch and one eighths across and less than a quarter of an inch thick.
32mm x 30mm x 5mm.

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

I'm always happy to do custom orders. For a full list of the woods I might have available, as well as their magical properties, associated folklore and a bunch of other stuff, check out my blog at: http://www.mazedasastoat.blogspot.com/
