Hel Tree of Life Pendant
I used permanently colored black and green copper wire to handcraft this Hel Tree of Life Pendant. I accented it with a lead and nickel free crescent moon charm, a gunmetal colored pewter setting, and a genuine Swarovski crystal.
Hel is the name of the Norse goddess of the underworld that was named Helheim, the lowest world at the roots of the sacred World Tree, and she gathers all the souls of those folk of the Northern Tradition who are not claimed by specific patron deities. Her name’s meaning of “Hidden” surely has to do with the underworld and the dead being “hidden” or buried beneath the ground. In the Northern Tradition, Death is not seen as evil – it is simply a part of the cycle of Nature.
She is said to be the daughter of Angrboda and Loki though a certain new movie series states she’s actually his and Thor’s sister.
