The oldest characters of the Germanic tribes

We deliver your rune together with a leather ribbon, loosely knotted. Please tighten the knots in the desired places. Also included is a small ring in case you want to wear the rune on one of your jewelry chains. Attach the ring to the eyelet of your rune if necessary.

The term "rune" is derived from a root rūn- (Gothic runa) meaning "secret". Related to this are also the German words "raunen" and "Geraune". Contrary to the widespread opinion that the name runes is of modern origin, there are several mentions of runa on incised objects from the 6th century (e.g. rune staff of Neudingen). And Venantius Fortunatus, who may have come into contact with runes in the Frankish Merovingian Empire, wrote around 565: Barbara fraxineis pingatur rhuna tabellis / quodque papyrus agit virgula plana valet. (The rune of the barbarians may be drawn on ash tablets; what the papyrus is capable of, the flat wooden stick is also suitable for. Carmina VII, 18).

The word letter is derived from the beech sticks on which the runes were carved. (Source: Wikipedia). With the rune jewelry we want to bring this centuries-old mysticism into the present. In the detail view to the article you will find a symbol explanation to the individual runes.

Information about the production of the runes:

The runes are worked from bronze, a copper tin alloy, in "lost casting".

  • A wax model of the rune is made by hand
  • This wax model is cast in plaster
  • The plaster mold is heated
  • The wax model liquefies and the wax flows out of the mold.
  • A cavity is created in the plaster mold
  • This cavity is then filled with liquid bronze
  • After the plaster mold has cooled down, it is smashed and the cast is then finely ground and polished
  • The wax model is lost in this working process, hence the term "lost casting". So no rune is like the other.
