Runes in the World of the Vikings:
In former times runes were utilized by the northern people as a magic language. They 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.
In old northern languages the word rune means secret, concealed law 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. One could furthermore recognize them by their deep blue capes and their amulet bags made of leather they carried on their belts. The profession of a runemaster could be chosen by men as well as by women - they were, second to the leader of the village, the most important members of the community.
Each pendant of this rune collection comes with a black cord, was inspired by the natural shape of rocks and is made of lead-free pewter, which is associated with earth.
The Meaning of the Rune Os:
Sometimes a wrong decision in life is inevitable and we should take this experience as an trial which guides us to change our life and seek spiritual growth: Although the rune Os invites us to seek a teacher to improve our knowledge, abilities and experiences, it advises us at the same time not to confide in cheaters or wrong masters. Somebody wearing this rune is normally interested in extraordinary ideas and wants to find and share them with others - very often these ideas come from a metaphysic or occult field. This is the rune of knowledge and learning, it tells us to seek the wisdom and advise of a studied person, teacher or mentor.
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.
Jewelry always had various functions which changed during the course of time: Because of the precious materials that were often used for its design it often was a valuable asset and sometime was even used as a currency. But especially in ancient cultures the spiritual meaning of a piece of jewelry was always important and the different motifs were symbols for the affiliation of its wearer to and his status in a social group. Furthermore jewelry can also serve a practical purpose like this is the case with safety pins, belt buckles and brooches.
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.
