“The ancient ruler of the 6th Lunar cycle / Month 13th May – 9th June. Known as the Queen of May or The Faerie Tree” – Harey Growler
Hawthorn leaf necklace – Recycled silver Victorian Shilling
A beautiful tree whose slender trunk supports wonderful branches covered in glorious leaves, thorns, blossom and berries. The Hawthorn in my garden attracts so much interest from insects to birds and who knows what else, certainly me. Last year i gathered lots of juicy berries, which after a lengthy but fun process and the addition of some apple rewarded me with yummy homemade fruit leather. The hawthorn represents Fertility, Chastity, Protection, Caution, Relaxation and Happiness. It is the ancient ruler of the 6th Lunar cycle / Month 13th May – 9th June. Known as the Queen of May or The Faerie Tree, but with so many other folk names you know it is and always has been an important tree to our lives.
The leaves I have created from a recycled silver coin are imbued with these connections and will make beautiful necklace and protection amulet. Each set is lovingly handcrafted to order and a delight to make.
The leaf is available as just the leaf to go on your own special chain, on an adjustable cotton neck cord (variety of colours), on one of my chains with accompanying star, heart or moon? or as a special for a wee bit extra to cover time needed with lovely Hawthorn berries cut from the silver shilling and overlaid with copper for the red colour. Each tiny berry is hand cut and engraved. If you would like the Hawthorn berries please select feather or paw print charm and then in the ‘check out’ comments section just let me know you’d like the berries !
