This handmade rune pendant has been shaped from terracotta clay and imprinted with the Mannaz rune, the nineteenth in the Elder Futhark Viking runic alphabet.
After firing in the kiln, it has been glazed using a green blue lead free glaze called Iceberg and then returned to the kiln for a final firing. The colour allows the terracotta to show through, resulting in a wonderfully rustic, primitive finish.
I have added a large red agate stone and a soft distressed leather cord.
The length is adjustable using the sliding knots.
Mannaz energy is related to man (woman), both singular and plural, mankind. It relates to the self, both self-care and the help we can give to others but only after we have first taken care of ourselves. Our Mannaz represents the sum total of who we are.
Red Agate is linked with passion and love, this can also be self-love, the fiery red of the stone represents flames of passion. It is protection against negativity. With it’s red colour, similar to carnelian, it is linked primarily with the root chakra although also the heart chakra.
