Thorn & Claw Jewellery

Cailleach - Blackthorn necklace in solid sterling silver


Armour yourself with solid silver Blackthorn, crossed in protective warding. This tree is sacred to the darkest wilds within us all. 

Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) dwells on the edge of forests and is often called the Dark Crone of the Woods. This is a plant of guarding, with Witches traditionally carving the runic symbol for thorn, on a Blackthorn stave for protection.

Blackthorn is linked with wars, wounds and death, and sacred to the Scottish Crone Cailleach - the Divine Hag. Her time begins on Samhain when she leaves the mountains and walks across the lands bringing winter storms, snow and Death. 

    This Blackthorn pendant is hand finished to create detailed shadows and highlights, accentuating all the intricate textures of the natural casting.
