The Freyja Collection
I dug into my Nordic roots in creating this powerful, fierce, uplifting collection.
One of the principal deities of the Norse pantheon, the lovely and enchanting Freyja was a goddess of blessings, love, lust, and fertility. A member of the Vanir tribe of deities, Freyja shared her people’s penchant for the magical arts of divination. It was Freyja who introduced the gods to seidr, a form of magic that allowed practitioners to know and change the future. Freyja achieved her ends with the gentle persuasions of gifts, beauty, and sex. While Freyja was often unselfish and helpful, she did have a darker side. Like the male gods, Freyja had a taste for blood and fought fiercely in battle. Given her expertise in controlling and manipulating the desires, health, and prosperity of others, she’s a being whose knowledge and power are almost without equal.
The Freyja Collection Mala of Passion is created with 108 6mm Garnet beads, hand knotted on a golden string and accented by brass leaves and spacers.
Garnet is a stone of regeneration and revitalization. It is said to be stabilizing in that it can bring order to chaos, whether internal or external. Garnet is a PROTECTIVE energy stone, which is especially known for protection from evil, during travel, nightmares and from wounds.
Garnet is also known for its utilization of creative energy. It grounds spirit forces within the body and helps in the ability to work lovingly on the physical plane. Yet Garnet is a sensual stone. It represents primordial fire, the creation of the world out of chaos, purification and love. It is a stone of strong, intense feelings.
