Created through a collaboration between fantasy artists Anne Stokes and Briar, our Hengebands are the perfect accent for ceremonies, parties or personal empowerment. They can be worn around the head, neck or even as a thigh decoration as the braided cord is adjustable for sizing.
More than a fashion accessory, they allow you to create in your mind's eye a circle of energy around you and awareness of this circle will allow you to center yourself.Each band is pewter with embellishments and comes on an adjustable leather thong with an organza pouch for storage, as well as an comprehensive leaflet with meanings.
* Titania's Star (For Feasting, Fun and Frivolity): Faeries were originally worshipped as minor goddesses, such as nymphs or tree spirits. Over time they have remained in Pagan Folklore as metaphors for the night sky and stars. They now are reputed to frolic in woodlands and grant good wishes to those who believe in and see them.
Spring Hare (For Boundless Energy) : The Celts believed that the Goddess Eostre’s attendant spirit was the hare. It represented love, fertility and growth and was associated with the Moon, dawn and Easter energy. Eostre changed into a hare at the full Moon and as such, the hare was considered to be a royal animal.
* Dragon Heart (For Happy Relationships) : While traditional Wiccans focus on gods and goddesses, Draconian Wiccans focus on dragons for guidance, with the dragon representing both gods and goddesses and balance and harmony. This dragon’s heart is said to balance out your differences in your inner circle and enhance happy relationships.
* Unity Rose (For Love and Friendship) : The Triquetra is an ancient Indo- European 3 pointed symbol representing 3 way unity. To many Pagans/Wiccans it represents the Triple Goddess. This unity rose will guide you towards strengthening your love and friendships.
* Lady of the Moon (For Beneficial Change) : For the astrological moon signs, it is reputed that beneficial change is enhanced when a blue moon is in phase. The traditional Mayas generally assume the moon to be female and the moon’s phases are conceived as the stages of a woman’s life.
* Needfire Butterfly (For Renewal) : The butterfly is one of nature’s greatest symbols of growth and transformation. It is associated with the fire of the Gods, which is the magical flame appearing in the Needfire. In many areas the end of harvest was an opportune time to light a special Needfire to assist in great times of strife, as it was reputed that if you threw some seeds into the flame it would assure your family is saved from famine and the cold.
* Bright Heart (For Vitality) : The heart chakra is located in the upper chest, links us to the physical world and is the foundation of energy. Spiritually, the root chakra has to do with protection of individual integrity, with the colour red representing life, vitality and strength.
