Natural Wood Pendant *Birch/Beith* Unique Ogham "Secret Sigil" Design!

This is an Ogham Secret Sigil pendant, made from a pretty piece of Birch wood. I can mark any of the symbols you see in my shop onto the back of a pendant, but so far only the Ogham ones have made it as far as the shop! The Ogham symbols corresponding to the tree which furnished the wood for each pendant is burned into the wood at the back, in the same way that Ogham was marked along the edge of stones so there is no centre line, which makes them less obvious than when the symbols are marked in the usual way... hence the name "Secret Sigil".

This particular pendant is made from a tiny plank cut from the branch of a Birch tree. The tree in question grows on the boundary between my garden and the neighbour's garden, and every so often it threatens to touch the electricity cables running to both houses so it has to be trimmed back out of the way. It's beautifully spalted, showing a mix of warm pinky-peach shades as well as the palest buttermilk, grey and black. You can see at each end of the pendant that the colours go right through the wood. It's immensely lightweight and comfortable to wear, and sure to gain compliments wherever you go.

These "Secret Sigil" 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. The Celtic Ogham symbols marked on the back can be a constant reminder of your Celtic heritage and help you to invoke the powers of the tree spirit. 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, and they also look great in bunches. It would make a perfect gift for anyone born in the right month according to the Celtic tree calendar, but as they used a lunar calendar I’ll leave you to work out when that would be as 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.

Birch is traditionally used for cleansing rites and driving out evil spirits. It is useful for matters concerning protection and healing, but its great strength is in rituals to do with birth, rebirth and renewal, or any kind of new beginning. It can be used in exorcism.

Size: Two and a half inches long, an inch and a quarter across and three sixteenths of an inch thick.
63mm x 31mm x 5mm.

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