Vaka Raven Necklace

170.00

MADE TO ORDER.

Vaka : "aware / watch" in Old Norse.

The Vaka Raven is taken from an old painting sketchbook of mine and hand forged into recycled molten sterling and fine silver. The silver has been patina darkened with file brightened sections. A trillion cut dark Viking iolite gemstone rests in the center and a small Rune is etched into one of the wings. Comes on a dark sterling 18" chain. If you would like help choosing a rune, please ask before purchasing!

Allow for 2 weeks production time before your piece ships in your direction. As each is hand forged Vaka ravens will vary.

These feature Elder Futhark runes - so far thought to be the oldest form of runes discovered. Runes were used by ancient Germanic speaking peoples and have become popularly known as "Viking" runes. While much of their actual history and translation is debated, the runes have one common myth in ancient Norse lore that has been patched together by using two different sagas (mainly). In summation, the god Odin is attributed with unlocking the knowledge of the runes. In a story called the Havamal, Odin is said to hang from a tree (possibly Yggdrasil, the Norse World tree) for 9 nights until he in a way earns the runes. Runes are said to posses magical properties. They imbue the one who wears them or the item them are on with what they represent. In the old days, they would be carved into weapons or jewelry.

As always comes sweetly packaged in a jewelry box ready for gift giving.
