The runes are 24 ancient symbols that form the Furthark: the ancient Celtic alphabet from which the German language derives.
They are signs rich in meaning linked to the collective unconscious. each rune represents a moment in Man's life: sowing, harvest, war, family, joy, love, friendship, fertility, death...
Each is also connected to an element of nature: water, the sun, ice, the yew tree, the cyclical nature of the seasons...
Wearing a rune means looking inside yourself and expressing all the symbolic potential that it contains.
The runic alphabet can be divided into three Aettir or families, in this section we present the first one called Aett of Heimdall.
This section of 8 runes represents the symbols of the great trials of life, those trials that bring us into contact with the profound meaning of existence.
Each pendant is handmade by Magal in the goldsmith's workshop in Vicenza.
The material used is 925 silver worked by fire and hammer.
The runic pendants can be worn with the black leather cord, the colored silk cord or the silver nugget cord.
You can select the chosen rune from the drop-down menu.
These are eight runes of the Aett of Heimdall:
HAGALAZ. It is the rune that represents hail, the breaking of the patterns of the known. It's the unexpected. The fury of nature that leads to change and renewal after having made a clean sweep.
NAUTHIZ. It is a difficult rune, it indicates suffering and oppression, inability to act and react, it puts us face to face with the darkness of our soul. It reminds us that we have to deal with ourselves and our inner monsters. Nauthiz represents the ultimate test to develop willpower.
It represents ice, staticity, immobility, indolence and laziness. It is a symbol of a moment of stasis in life. As happens in winter under the ice, the sprout of a new life is being born. JERA. It represents the cyclical nature of existence. It reminds us that there is a time between sowing and harvest, so sometimes we need to be patient so that we can reap the fully ripe fruits. It is the bearer of evolution and change that will take place based on our choices and our trust in life.

This is the rune of balance, linked to the yew tree. This tree has a type of wood of enormous elasticity and resistance suitable for the construction of bows. This rune awakens in us ductility and perseverance in the face of life's circumstances which could translate into the motto: "I bend but I don't break".
It is the rune of lightness and regeneration from all points of view: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
It draws from us the strength to free ourselves from old past patterns, making us lighter, ready to fully enjoy the beauty of life.
It represents sacred space. It reminds us of the importance for each of us to define our own boundaries and reminds us to use our ability to defend this space definable as respect and love for oneself.
It is the rune linked to the energy of the sun. By chasing away darkness, sunlight brings well-being and vitality. It also brings self-esteem and gives great mental clarity. It is the realization, the liberation from the accumulation of tensions, the moment in which our efforts are rewarded.
