Description

BLACKTHORN CHARM NECKLACE ~ For Fate, Hope, Protection & Good Fortune

Blackthorn today has a negative and sinister reputation, possibly due to its importance to pagans and therefore entrenchment in Celtic folklore. In ancient Ireland, it was known as straif, believed to be the origin of the modern English word strife. But original beliefs were that blackthorn was a force for protection and hope against adversity. The Celtic goddess of Winter, Cailleach, is depicted with a blackthorn staff which she uses to summon storms. Emerging at Samhain, she takes over the year from Brigid, the Summer goddess. Blackthorn has such a powerful magic that a tribe of fairy guardians protect the trees from human disturbance and witches use the wood for wands. Carry a blackthorn leaf, flower or berry charm to attract the powers of good fortune.

Our petite sentiment charms are made with real flowers in sterling silver, using the traditional technique of lost wax casting. They are beautifully packaged with our signature box posy which changes with the seasons, a postcard detailing the botanical folklore and floriography of each piece, and a gift card for a personal message.

Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.

Flower & Fable

Beddgelert, gwynedd

We are Karen & Ben Lambert, working together from our shop/workshop while living above. We use real flowers to create vintage & floriography inspired jewellery, using a mixture of traditional and specifically developed techniques.

We believe that jewellery should feel like a gift, whether for yourself or for someone else, so it should be beautifully packaged. From eco-packaging and hand dyed bamboo silk ribbons, to our seasonal, scented dried flower posy, we love attention to detail, and for Karen, it's a favourite part of the process.
