Troll Cross 1
The Troll Cross, or Trollkors, is symbol of protection against malicious magic. It is often thought to be an item of folklore, but there is no archeological evidence of it having been worn as jewelry. That appears to be a a more recent folk magic tradition. The Troll Cross has a strong resemblance to the rune Othala (Odal). I like to think of its protective power as carrying home, not the building, but the feeling of place, with you wherever you go.
I forge my Troll Crosses on Friday (Freya's day). I make offering to Freya before each forging, and ask her to bless my work. I as forge each pendant, I chant into them runes of home and protection. The Troll Cross is a protective symbol. They remind me of the rune Othala. The ones I forge I think of as carrying a sense belonging to place, being at home where you are, belonging to the land you are on, as a form of protection.
My Troll Cross pendants are hand forged from steel. Each pendant is unique. They are given a protective coating by being heated and dipped in beeswax, giving them their beautiful black patina.
This pendant comes on a black deer skin lace cord approximately 32" long (hangs approximately 16"). The cord is double knotted to be adjustable. If you would prefer a vegan/nylon cord, please let me know and I'll be happy to send you the pendant with the preferred cord.
Each piece I forge is unique. The photos for this listing show the actual specific piece you will get upon purchase.
