This simple, tactile bead pendant is carved from blackthorn wood. Each bead is individually hand carved and the beautifully warm colouring and natural graining within the wood makes each one unique. The darker band around the edge gives a lovely finish to the bead. In ogham, the blackthorn is known as straif and it has strong associations with fate and seeing the positives in the path which life wishes you to follow. Its impenetrable thorns also make blackthorn a keeper of secrets.
It is supplied with leather or cotton cord thong. If you have a preference about the thonging type please add a note in the message box during checkout.
Note: The bead for sale in this listing is the one shown singly in some pictures, and the one with the thin black band around the edge in the group shots.
Bead size: Just under 3 cm /1 1/8 inch across (approx.)
