Beautiful handmade ceramic rune stone pendant made from high fire white stoneware pottery clay.
This focal bead has been hand formed by me, dried for several days, carved with the ancient Futhark Runic alphabet for "ASGARD", fired for many hours, then glazed to give the appearance of weathered stone and fired once again. Resistant to all the elements, extremely hard and will last a lifetime! Made with care and lots of love!!
Threaded onto a strong adjustable 2mm thick black braided cord. The bead itself measures 1-1/4 inch wide x 1-3/8 inch long by 1/4 inch thick ( 32mm x 36mm x 6mm).
**Each creation is unique and one of a kind. You will receive what is EXACTLY pictured in the photos above. Colour intensity may vary from PC monitor to smart phone screen.*
One of the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology and the home and fortress of the Aesir, one of the two tribes of gods (the other being the Vanir, who have their home in Vanaheim). Asgard is located in the sky (albeit spiritually rather than physically) and is connected to Midgard, the world of humanity, by the rainbow bridge Bifrost.
The -gard element in Asgard’s name is a reference to the ancient Germanic concept of the distinction between the innangard and utangard. That which is innangard (“inside the fence”) is orderly, law-abiding, and civilized, while that which is utangard (“beyond the fence”) is chaotic, anarchic, and wild. This applies both to the geographical plane and the human psyche; thoughts and actions can be innangard or utangard just as readily as spatial locations. Asgard is the ultimate model of the innangard, while Jotunheim, the “Homeland of the Giants,” is the epitome of the utangard
