Grown by Mother Nature, crafted by Spirit of Old

Spirit of Old was borne by a love of nature and deeply held Pagan beliefs. We craft Pagan and nature-themed pendants, amulets and ritual tools using decent, earthy materials. The Pagan market is flooded with plastic and resin tat from far away countries that you can buy anywhere. What we make has real soul and is crafted in the Celtic heartlands of Wessex, southern England.

We're very careful about where and how we gather materials for our items. Our aim is to produce finely crafted magickal items from the best materials with the least harm caused to the environment and the entities who inhabit and share the land.

A good part of the wood we work with comes from a large ancient coppiced woodland in Hampshire. Coppiced woodland is grown specifically with the intention of the wood being harvested and cleared regularly. This is a practice which has been carried out in Britain and also within our area of Wessex since prehistoric times.
Because of the large amount of woodland around here we can find plenty of windfallen and old wood to craft items from. We don't want to go upsetting any powers that may be present!

We ensure that it is collected over large areas rather than a lot from any particular place to prevent any habitat being affected. Any wood which is collected from within or near to sites of magickal or archaeological importance is gathered with utmost respect and care. This is paramount to what we do.

We also work with bog wood including bog oak, yew, ash and pine. This is wood from ancient times, often many thousands of years ago which has lived, fallen and been naturally preserved in the ground. Much of the bog wood Spirit of Old works with has been found on farmland when drainage ditches are dug and some of the wood comes from peat bogs.

The herbs used for smudging sticks and dream amulets are hand-gathered and organically grown. Many of them are hedge-gathered and they are always dried naturally and slowly to preserve their magickal essence.

Some of our jewellery is crafted from mammoth ivory, bear bone and antler dating from the last ice age. The materials for these have usually been dredged up by fishing vessels, often from Doggerland in the North Sea and then sold on. They are lovely materials to work with, full of interesting textures and energies.

Other jewellery is created using modern-day deer antler, hare and foxbone. We are careful to ensure that no animals have been harmed to supply these materials and, equally importantly that no market is created to supply them. Deer naturally shed their antlers during the course of their life and the antler we use has always been cast off in this way.

We use animal bones found naturally in our local area. We spend a lot of time walking in the countryside and rambling in the woods and chance upon an animal find every now and then. The remains are treated with respect and it seems very fitting for a gift from Nature to be crafted into talismans and charms honouring that animal's spirit and energy.

If you have any further questions please feel free to message or email enquiries [!at] spiritofold.co.uk. We have a very busy Facebook page (links are on the right of this page) and we're also on Twitter and Instagram too - please come and say hello :-)

Welcome to Spirit of Old! We hand craft wands, athames, pendants, dream amulets, pottery items and rune and ogham sets made from the finest materials gathered from many mystical and ancient places around southern Britain - Celtic hillforts, ancient forests, various megalithic sites and sacred green spaces.

We work and play in the ancient Celtic heartlands of Britain where the Durotriges and Atrebates tribes ruled in prehistory. Our items are handcrafted ritual tools with real Celtic soul, something with real spirit and as each piece is individually made, no two are ever quite the same.

If you don't see what you're looking for here on our Etsy shop please see the main shop at https://spiritofold.bigcartel.com.

We're convo friendly and you can also contact us by emailing enquiries [!at] spiritofold.co.uk.

This does not apply to items made to order including customised items or copies of items which are requested by the customer unless the item is faulty or damaged.

We want you to love your new Spirit of Old treasure and the service we offer so in the (very!) rare event of a problem, please send a message or email us at enquiries [!at] spiritofold.co.uk. We will do everything we can to help resolve any problem.

Payment
We are happy to post worldwide and accept payment through Etsy direct payments and also through Paypal. All orders must be paid for in full, and funds must have cleared before goods are posted out.
Shipping
Please see individual listings for an idea of how long it takes to post items out - it varies depending on whether the piece is a stock item or made to order. If your item is made to order or a custom piece, we will estimate the timescale for it to be made but it may be a little variable due to the hand crafted nature of our items.

If you need an item urgently or for a set date please feel free to email or message and we can advise on what's possible.

- UK customers:

If you are in the UK and would like to change to delivery to Special Delivery instead of first class, please message and I can set up a custom listing.

As standard, items within the UK are sent via Royal Mail using first class Signed For.

- Customers outside of the UK:

Items outside of the UK are sent via airmail with tracking and insurance.

Etsy has started to estimate shipping times for certain mail services but please be aware that these can be, in reality, quite variable. As an example, they estimate airmail to take 5 - 7 days from posting. This may be possible within Europe but UK to US is generally a little longer (approx. 7 - 10 days, sometimes 14 and very occasionally longer).

We will ship your item as soon as possible after receiving your order, but the transit time is out of our hands. We will always help with tracking your package and, in the (rare) event of delivery problems, we will help to resolve issues.

If you're outside of the UK you may be required to pay customs charges and/or comply with your country's import regulations and these are the responsibility of the customer.
