Made from solid natural oak wood with a leather thong.
Our Oak Runes are cut from a single piece of oak in order to assure continuity with the oak tree's spirit. The magic of the oak tree is well placed in the cultures of Nordic, Wiccan, Druidic and other traditions.
These pendents are waxed with our own wax recipe that only includes natural ingredients (mineral oil, white bee's wax and coconut oil)
Simply pick which rune engraving you would like and we will make it to order.
Size: 37mm x 22mm approx and 6mm thick. As each Rune is carefully finished by hand their may be very small differences in size between Runes. Leather thong is approximately 1m long
The runes stem from an ancient form of Germanic alphabet, which was used by the Germanic and Nordic tribes of northern Europe, Scandinavia and Britain for writing, divination and magical purposes. Runic inscriptions have been found on stones, jewellery, weapons and objects dating back to the 3rd century AD, but it’s likely that they existed long before that.
