I have made this rune set to honor Frigg by putting the mistletoe inside them. Mistletoe is sacred to Frigga, and silver is an association.
I have handpainted each stave in brushed silver and given them a protective coating.
They will come in a handpainted burlap bag.
This is a gorgeous set and I love the way the preserved mistletoe leaves and berries look inside each one.
I ship quickly.
The story of Frigga and the mistletoe:
Viking beliefs of Mistletoe's powers were rooted in the myth of the resurrection of Balder, the god of the summer sun. As the story goes, Balder had a dream in which he dies. The dream alarmed his mother, Frigga, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, for if Balder died, so too would all life on earth. Frigga went to all the elements, air, fire, water and earth as well as all the animals and plants on earth and asked them to spare her son. Satisfied that she had secured the cooperation of all, Frigga assured Balder that he would live forever. But Balder had one enemy, Loki, God of Evil, and Loki found one plant that Frigga had overlooked - Mistletoe. Mistletoe grows neither on the ground or under the ground - rather, it is an aerial parasite that has no roots of its own and attaches itself to the tree it grows on.
Loki made a poisoned arrow tip with the Mistletoe and tricked Balder's blind brother, Hoder, into shooting the arrow and killing Balder. For three days, the earth grew dark and the skies poured rain. Each of the elements in turn, tried to bring Balder back to life, but none were successful save for Frigga, his loving mother. Legend says that the tears she shed during those terrible three days turned into the white berries on the Mistletoe plant. In her joy at Balder's resurrection, she reversed Mistletoe's poisonous reputation, kissed everyone who passed beneath the tree on which it grew and issued a decree that should one ever pass beneath the Mistletoe, they should have a token kiss and no harm would befall them.
