Valkyrie Tree of Life Pendant
I used sterling silver plated copper wire and permanently colored sky blue copper wire to handcraft this Valkyrie Tree of Life Pendant. I accented it with a lead and nickel free crescent moon charm, a lead and nickel free Pegasus charm, a silver plated pewter setting, and a genuine Swarovski crystal.
A Valkyrie (which means “chooser of the fallen” in old Norse) is a female warrior spirit who’s job it is to bear dead heroes to Valhalla. These elegant, noble maidens guide the fallen to Valhalla so that they can fight beside Odin during Ragnarok. Old Norse literature made references to purely supernatural Valkyries and also to human Valkyries with certain supernatural powers. both types of beings were associated with fairness, brightness, and gold…as well as bloodshed.
Crescent Moon Symbolism
The word “crescent” comes from the Latin term ceres meaning to “bring forth, create,” and crescere, the Latin term for “grow, thrive.”
There are many symbols of crescent moons. Each symbol carries its own meaning.
The waning crescent symbolizes getting rid of negative energy in your life. A spiritual cleaning house so to speak. To get rid of any thing, person, or habit that might be harming you while a waxing crescent symbolizes growth and creativity. So, there is a lot of room for interpretation in this symbol. You really have to contemplate it and find what the crescent moon is trying to say to you.
The moon also represents these:
- Intuition, Inner Knowledge
The moon is the illumination between complete darkness and the sun’s complete light. It’s the elusive connection between consciousness and subconscious; the inbetween and unknown.
