This wooden pendant is inspired by “Venus” figurines made during the Paleolithic. We don’t know what they represented to people at the time. Were they protection amulets, images of goddesses, or simple self portraits? No matter what they represented tens of thousands of years ago, they are an enduring representation of the human form that connects us to our ancestors.
Gemma carves these wooden goddess pendants by hand, so each one is entirely unique. This goddess is made from blackthorn— a wood with ancient and magical associations. Blackthorn blooms beautifully in hedgerows in the spring, but it’s also got viciously long thorns to protect itself. This pendant is 3 inches long. The pendant comes with a leather cord, but a vegan alternative is available on request.
