We made these for NoVA Pagan Pride Day in September, but I hadn’t gotten around to blogging about them or uploading them to the shop until now! October was a crazy month, ya’ll, and now I’m playing catch-up.
Like most of our bracelets, these are made from a variety of stone beads, many of which are semi-precious, pearl knotted on durable nylon cording, with metal toggle clasps. The Freyr bracelet is made with red tiger’s eye, chrysanthemum stone, and mahogany obsidian. The one for Freyja has golden tiger’s eye, red agate, and rutilated quartz. For Nerthus, we chose kambaba jasper, moss agate, and bronzeite. The bracelet for Njord has larvikite, dumortierite, and sodalite. The tiger’s eye, bronzeite, larvikite, and dumortierite all have flashes that are not readily caught in a photograph, and the greens in the kambaba jasper are much more brilliant in the sunlight. Overall, though, the above images are a fair rendering of the stones used. The findings are all gold-colored metal, and the difference in coloring here is not as pronounced in person; here it’s largely due to environmental reflections in the photographs. Each bracelet also includes a single glass bead to ease the use of the toggle clasp. These bracelets are approximately 8 inches long, and we can make them longer or shorter to better fit you, if requested.
All four are now available in the Etsy shop for $40 each, and we can make stretchy versions of them for the slightly cheaper price of $25 (due to the less intensive labor process and fewer materials), so do inquire if you’d prefer that style!
Also, since we’ve started to expand our devotional bracelets out to the Celtic and Germanic pantheons, who else do you want to see? Let us know!
