New orders for this item won't reach you for Xmas *but* you can still give it as a gift! Simply let me know that your order is intended as a Xmas gift by adding a note during checkout and I can send you a printable PDF to give on the day. It will detail the rather special gift which is being handcrafted for the recipient, and will show them what will be arriving. The physical staves will be sent when they're ready, roughly 8 - 9 weeks after ordering (possibly slightly longer at very busy times).
These wonderful ogham sets contain the original set of 20 ogham sticks, each one handcrafted from the traditional corresponding tree, shrub and plant type. Truly correct ogham sets are extremely rare but each and every type of wood has been gathered together to create these beautiful tools to divination. This set includes only the original twenty staves and not the additional five Forfeda staves.
We work and play in the ancient Celtic heartlands of Britain where the Durotriges and Atrebates tribes ruled in prehistory. These ogham staves are handcrafted ritual tools with real Celtic soul, something with real spirit and as each set is individually made, no two are ever the same.
Supplied with a simple cotton bag for storage, a certificate of authenticity, an information sheet with full correspondences and woods list, and an information sheet about how to care for your staves. The sheets can be in PDF form for easy printing or paper for gift-giving - please add a note in the message box during checkout if needed for a gift.
Each set will vary slightly in shape, colour, texture and graining. The pictures shown are past examples and, while the newly crafted sets will contain exactly the same wood types and be very similar in overall style and size, there will be small differences. That's part of the natural beauty of handcrafted items :-)
The sets contain one each of the woods listed in bold below.
Note: The alternative woods, listed in brackets below, are occasionally chosen by various traditions or paths which use differing woods from the generally accepted standards.
