The Bog Oak Awen Pendant

This is the latest creation from the Crystal Grove and I am so happy that it turned out as well as I imagined.

As a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids the Awen symbol has a special significance to me. Awen loosely translated from Welsh means “flowing spirit” or “flowing inspiration”. Awen is the inspiration found by creative artists. Awen is symbolised by 3 rays of light emanating from 3 points. These points can represent the triple aspect of deity, and also the points that the sun rises on the equinoxes and solstices.

The center of the pendant is a piece of Bog Oak. This is Oak that has been buried and preserved in a peat bog in Ireland for over 3000 years. During that time the wood has been preserved from decay by the acidic conditions of the bog and it hardens and turns a very dark colour from the tannins in the water. This is the earlier stages of fossilisation.

Great care has been taken in surrounding the Bog Oak with a thick Sterling Silver band and an Awen symbol is carefully inlayed into the precious wood. All of this work is carried out by hand with great care and a sense of peace. The pendant is 40mm diameter and 7mm thick.

Sterling Silver is used in the Bog Oak Awen Pendant to bring love, peace, protection, and psychic connections to the wearer. The Awen symbol itself will allow the wearer to develop their creativity. The Oak itself, having lived back in the time of early Druids will carry a deep connection to the past.

The price is $160 plus postage.

Similar pendants can be commissioned with any symbol you like. Contact me for more details on price and how long it will take to make one.
