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.
