BLACKTHORN - for protection, balance and guidance.
Blackthorn is known as the witches' wood and was used to ward off evil spirits, particularly in the darker half of the year. It's said that blackthorn was used for wands & broomsticks. In the Celtic Ogham alphabet blackthorn represents 'Straif' and is the ruler of the darker half from Samhain to Beltane.
This blackthorn amulet is 3 inches long and is handmade from fallen wood from South Essex, and comes with a handwritten note from the artist.
Comes on a British sterling silver curb chain of either 24 inches or 28 inches.
