Vegvísir shilling

vegvisir rune jewellery


The wind buffets the lone smudge on the landscape, a brown cloak in a sea of white. A glimmer of silver winds its way around the bearer’s neck. A charm swings on a thick battered chain. The wearer looks up to the sky for a moment. Blue eyes, as pale as a winter’s morning, scan the sky. A hunter’s gaze, practised and unfailing. Unfaltering. Then the figure carries on, the snow covering the tracks almost faster than he makes them. Soon a cloud of white obscures the vision, a snowdrift collapsing. When it clears, the figure has gone.

Vegvisir necklace – Recycled 100 year old silver shilling coin

The Vegvisir is a runic compass, that consists of eight magical runes, used by the Wayfinders of the Viking era as a sign post or compass for protection during travels. The design is taken from the Huld manuscript circa 1860. I have handcrafted and recycled the design from an old silver half crown coin. The only other mention of the Vegvisir is in a grimoir; a book of spells, the Vegvisir being the key component in a Wayfinders’ spell. This particular spell was supposed to bind the user to their path, to make sure the individual wouldn’t stray form their path.

Vegvisir necklace, Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.  If you would like a rune charm for the necklace shepherds crook hook catch please feel free to add one to your cart here : RUNE CHARM
