HOWLITE/PYRITE/ TITANIUM GIFU PENDANT
OLD NORSE MAN JEWELRY FOR ALL YOU VIKING MOTHERF&%CKERS
The first systems of writing developed and used by the Norse and other Germanic peoples were runic alphabets. The runes functioned as letters, but they were much more than just letters in the sense in which we today understand the term. Each rune was an ideographic or pictographic symbol of some cosmological principle or power, and to write a rune was to invoke and direct the force for which it stood.
GEBO RUNE– “Gay-boo” – Literally: “Gift” – Esoteric: Fair Exchange, Sacrifice, Sacred Marriage

Howlite- Howlite is a stone that teaches patience. It is calming and is used to relieve stress and insomnia due to an overactive mind. Wear howlite to absorb your own anger- or another’s anger that is directed toward you. It helps to overcome critical or selfish behavior.
Pyrite- This mineral possesses a defending quality and is an excellent preventive which will shield one from many forms of negative energy. Having pyrite on ones person brings in a protective, shielding aspect which blocks negativity and protects one while performing dangerous work. Pyrite encourages the ideals of healthy body, intellect, and emotional well-being.
The RUNE pendants are made from Titanium, brass and copper. All other metal including the clasp is Sterling Silver. Necklace length varies between 20 and 22 inches. I select the gemstones and design each necklace individually, and one at a time.
