This powerful Witches Knot or Magic Knot symbol has been hand burnt onto the surface of a small sliver of wood found whilst out walking along Otter valley. The wood has been sanded so the surface is smooth to wear. The piece has then been lightly waxed with our own natural beeswax, olive oil and lavender hand-blended wax and given a little polish. It is strung onto an adjustable cord, so it can be put over your head and adjusted to you desired length.
The Witches Knot also known as the Magic Knot is a powerful feminine charm and symbol of protection against curses and hexes. Our ancient sisters were well versed in the craft of knots using them to tie up the weather, create circles of protection and to bind things magically. There is more symbolism in this seemingly simple knot than first meets the eye.
The symbol features four inter-laced vesica piscis (the mathematical shape formed by the intersection of two disks with the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the center of each disk lies on the perimeter of the other, most commonly seen in the Flower of Life symbol) The vesica piscis is a world-wide symbol for the yoni, the feminine creative force that gave birth to the universe. The interlacement represents the feminine control of the forces of nature. The circle is one of the primary female symbols representing the sacred or consecrated space and the spirals form the sign of the serpent, the oldest symbol of female energy, the embodiment of enlightenment and wisdom. This combination of cogent symbols makes the Witches Knot a potent representation of female might and power!
Very light and easy to wear. This piece is handmade and as with the nature of wood, no two designs will ever be exactly the same, so it is truly original. Approx 50mm / 2" diameter. Supplied in an organza drawstring bag.
