I had been looking for one of these since I saw it wrapped around the Queen’s (Lights Bokan) neck. I couldn’t find one anywhere in the UK and trust me I searched high and low. I told my sister about this and when I next met up with her she gave me a little parcel dressed in beautiful butterfly tissue paper. I carefully opened it and this gorgeous piece of jewelry fell out onto my lap. I absolutely love it!
I got this piece at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A guy was selling loads of carved stones. I asked him what this one was, thinking it was an eagle of some sort, but he informed me it was a Viking Valkyrie which is kind of like a Spirit Guide for the female warriors. They’re there to watch over them in battle and if they die the Valkyrie makes sure they get to Valhalla. I thought this was a really cool concept and so decided to purchase it – hoping that she will too look after me.
This little guy is a boar. I kind of just liked him cause he is really cute, but he too also has some strange spiritual related meaning behind him too. Apparently boars represent courage and strength and are often spirit guardians – again, acting as protectors from the the other side. I quite like this idea, and I’ve always had a thing for finding pigs cute… So I couldn’t not pick him up! (I found him in Afflecks Palace -Manchester).
I hope you like my collection of necklaces. Let me know in the comments below what your favourite things are to wear around your neck.
Until next time x
