Thorn & Claw Jewellery

Straif - Blackthorn earrings in solid sterling silver


Adorn yourself with Blackthorn earrings, daggers to ward your spirit against modern perils.  

Straif is the Irish name of the fourteenth letter of the Ogham alphabet ᚎ, represented by Blackthorn. 

Blackthorn has a sinister reputation and it often represents the dark side of witchcraft and magick. It is a sacred tree to the Crone aspect of the Triple Goddess and is associated with the Waning and Dark Moon. Blackthorn is also known as the keeper of dark secrets.

Life-cast from a Blackthorn tree in my English garden, these earrings are handcrafted to create detailed shadows and highlights, accentuating all the intricate textures of the natural casting.
