Mother Troll Amethyst Point Pendant Necklace

£27.00 GBP

Wire wrapped raw amethyst pendant on a copper plated stainless steel ballchain. 
  • Copper wire to weaves a minimal net around this this piece of amethyst
  • I have blessed this stone in sacred well water and also let it drink up the light of the moon
  • This hunk of amethyst has quite a presence, so I've decided to call her Mother Troll
  • The amethyst stone is approximately 2 1/4" or 5.5cm long. It hangs from a 30" or 76cm length of copper plated iron chain
In this fragment of the Prose Edda, Skáldskaparmál, translated by Anthony Faulkes, the Norwegian court-poet Bragi describes his meeting up with a Troll woman, who declares herself. It sums up the power of this piece well:
'Trolls call me
moon of dwelling-Rungnir,
giant's wealth-sucker,
storm-sun's bale,
seeress's friendly companion,
guardian of corpse-fjord
swallower of heaven-wheel;
what is a troll other than that?'

All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
