Berries were amongst the first natural materials that were used as jewelry and adornments. The act of making and wearing this ancient jewelry transports one back to simpler times of the past.. the times our ancestors deeply worshipped & lived in harmony with the land. Crafting necklaces such as these are considered Medicine Necklaces, as the properties of these sacred berries & stones are thought to protect & seep into the being of the one who wears them.
The Rowan Berry & Rose Hip Spiral Mother necklace is crafted In honor of the sacred womb, adorned with a pendant of the Spiral Mother that represents the cycles & sacred maternal line. There are 3 Rowan berries & symbolizing the 3 Norns, between every Rose Hip.
Wildcrafted and crafted along with the Moon phases, these necklaces combine the collaborative energy of 3 women. I am grateful to have had their loving hands weave there energy into crafting these with me this year, to pass onto whomever feels called to them! 🌀
Since I was a little girl I always had Rowan Berries hanging above my doorways, on my alter & strung as necklaces. They are often given & received as gifts from Sisterwitches, whenever protection or magical aid was needed to move through trauma & hard times. I love to think by sending these out into the world I am continuing the cycle of passing on the Medicine Necklace to those in need.
*Necklaces are strung with sturdy linen thread and are roughly 14 inches long, easy to get on and off.

All about Deer Medicine:
Since the early Neolithic, when the Earth was much colder, the female reindeer was deeply worshipped & respected in the North. She was considered to be the “Life-Giving Mother” the leader of the herds, she was depended on for survival, milk, food, clothing & shelter.
Throughout Europe, she was revered as the spiritual figure of Winter Solstice and Yuletide. The symbol of fertility, motherhood, regeneration & rebirth of the Sun. Her antlers adorned shrines and sacred altars, were buried in ceremonial graves & worn as shamanic headdresses. Her image was etched into stones, woven into ceremonial cloth & clothing, cast in jewelry, painted on drums & tattooed onto skin.
The reindeer was often shown flying through the air, neck & legs outstretched. Her antlers depicted as the tree of life carrying birds, the Sun, Moon & stars. Across the North, it was the Deer Mother who took flight from the dark of the old year to bring light & life to the new.
For the Sami, the Sun Goddess that symbolizes motherhood, fertility of plants & the reindeer. At Winter Solstice, warm butter -symbol of the Sun- was smeared on doorposts as a sacrifice to Beaivi so she could gain strength and fly higher into the sky. Beivve was often shown accompanied by her daughter in an enclosure of reindeer antlers, together they returned green fertility to the land.
In Siberian legends the reindeer took flight each winter after ingesting Amanita Muscaria. Shamans would also take this medicine, joining her on a vision quest, climbing the tree of life in her horns they‘d take flight like a bird into the upper realms. It is also said that Shamans would collect the mushrooms and dress in red suits with white spots, delivering them through chimneys as gifts on the Winter Solstice. So during the sacred night when the sun is reborn, look for the Deer Mother flying across starry skies, carrying the tree of life in her horns.
Deer has always been a very powerful & worshipped animal to my mother and I. I feel an even deeper closeness to her during this season.
