Long ago, the Germanic and Scandinavian peoples celebrated the twelve days of Yule in midwinter in honor of the long-bearded Norse god Odin. Animals were sacrificed and roasted for a feast, gifts given, poetry recited, and many toasts made with mead and ale.
Plants and trees that remained evergreen throughout winter regarded as sacred and magical hung in wreaths of pine, fir, spruce, mistletoe, and holly over entrances and openings to keep away evil and illness and to bring good fortune in the coming year.
OHM is happy to celebrate the holiday wreath and the ancient magic of the evergreen with this beautifully detailed WINTER BOUGH spacer bead. A lovely pine cone, still attached.
Cones also have an ancient tradition in rituals of purification. Plus, the seeds make delicious pine nuts!
This lovely spacer-dangle bead will bring a delicate touch of winter beauty to your bracelet long after the holiday decorations are packed away. It may also bring good luck and good health inspired by evergreen boughs of eons past.
