Runes in the World of the Vikings:
Since former times runes were used to write down messages as well as to prepare talismans and charms which were needed for telling the future and other magic rituals - they were also utilized by the northern people as a magic language.
In old northern languages the word rune means concealed law, secret and magic sign.
Runemasters normally carried a wooden stick with a bronze head, in which rune signs were carved, as a symbol of their power and status. This profession could be chosen by men as well as by women.. Runemasters were, second to the leader of the village, the most important members of the community - one could easily recognize them by their deep blue capes and their amulet bags made of leather they carried on their belts.
The pendants of this rune collection were inspired by the natural shape of rocks and made of lead-free pewter, which is associated with earth. Each pendant comes with a black cord.
The Meaning of the Rune Cen:
The rune Cen stands for love, passion and faithfulness in a partnership and asks for a new beginning without abandoning old values. The Vikings associated the rune Cen with the Goddess of Magic Freya who represented sexual love and human desires - moreover Cen is said to grant self-confidence and to boost creativity. According to Nordic belief this Rune increases the magic of other runes and enhances the bodys healing powers and health.
Example of a Rune Spell from a Grimoire of White Magic:
1. Purificatio (Cleaning):
Before the Rune is charged with energy, it should be covered with salt and kept overnight in a safe place, so that all adhering energy frequencies can be cleared.
2. Preparatio (Preparation):
In a quiet room cover a table with a white cloth and keep ready incense, a white candle and a compass. Preferably the rune should be made of a metal, which is associated with earth, so that the energies of this earth ritual can be absorbed very easily.
Take care that you will not be disturbed and black out the room. The power of our Mother Earth flows from the northern direction - therefore place yourself with the help of your compass in front of the table so that you face north. Put the white candle and the incense in the middle of the table, ignite both and place the rune next to them.
3. Potestatem Facere (Charging):
Close your eyes and meditate for a while over the meaning of this rune, then hold your hands above it. Now send the power of your thoughts through your hands into the pendant and then deeper into the ground, penetrate the surface, wander through the realm of roots and rocks until you have reached the inner core of Mother Earth. Feel the fiery power of the element earth in front of your spiritual eye then drag it upwards into your body - now feel the heat in your arms and take the rune in your hands. While you once again reflect over the meaning of this rune, it will absorb the whole earth energy until it completely vanishes from your body.
4. Salvatio (Reorientation):
Recover for a short while and have a meal to bring your body back to this world.

We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces of jewelry in our collection.
Since the beginning of mankind jewelry served several different purposes. Already before the invention of money it was for example used as a kind of currency, as a status symbol or as a valuable asset that even could be passed on to future generations. Many pieces of jewelry also had a functional purpose like it is the case with fastenings for clothes, safety pins and belt buckles. However, at a more spiritual level the jewelry also had a symbolic meaning, showed the affiliation to and the status in a social group, and was worn for the protection from evil or simply to show one's own taste.
On account of these many different purposes the meaning of single pieces of jewelry can be very different and depends on the belief and the point of view of the respective manufacturer. In some cultures, e.g., bracelets were used as wedding jewelry, like the wedding rings of today, in other societies necklaces served the same purpose. The symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry often cannot only be found in the piece itself, but also in its decorations or the used materials. In some cultures it is usual to give pieces of jewelry as a gift at certain important times in life which should emphasize the symbolic meaning of these events with the help of their decorations. These pieces were then often worn as amulets or talismans and were believed to protect and support its wearer during this new situation in life.
Not only the used symbols and decorations differ strongly between the cultures - a huge number of different materials were also used in the course of time. In the beginnings especially shells and pearls of wood and bone were used, because these natural materials were readily available and could easily be processed. Later the precious metals silver and gold became more and more important and also the use of precious stones increased. Nowadays all possible materials are used to underline the meaning of a piece of jewelry even further thereby creating pendants and other jewelry that could not be designed using traditional materials.
