This handmade rune pendant has been shaped from terracotta clay and imprinted with the Sowilo rune, the sixteenth in the Elder Futhark Viking runic alphabet. It is a simple unisex necklace, the rune pendant measures 2.5 cm in length, about the size of a large thumb print.
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.
It hangs from a brown waxed cotton cord with a lobster claw closure.
Sowilo represents the sun, a powerful energy source that both nurtures and destroys, allowing plants to grow for example but also capable of melting an iceberg. Your Sowilo energy gives you the power to shine and to overcome the parts of you that lack the confidence to do so. Sowilo's opposite rune is Isa, that of ice, Sowilo gives you the fire to push through and achieve.
