Hengeband Needfire Butterfly head band choker Anne Stokes jewellery fairy fest
Needfire Butterfly - For Renewal
The butterfly is one of nature’s greatest symbols of growth and transformation. It is associated with the fire of the Gods, which is the magical flame appearing in the Needfire. In many areas the end of harvest was an opportune time to light a special Needfire to assist in great times of strife, as it was reputed that if you threw some seeds into the flame it would assure your family is saved from famine and the cold.
This Hengeband has the central jewellery piece with a black leather double braided adjustable cord to be worn across your forehead, as a choker, on your upper arm or as a garter.
Perfect for fairy festivals and ceremonies.
The magic circle has been used for thousands of years to capture energy, form a holy space and provide magical protection. Many mysteries, though, still wait to be discovered from the stone circles from pre-history that the many henges in the UK and Europe contain. Hengebands are much more than just a fashion declaration. They allow you to create in your mind’s eye a circle of energy around you and awareness of this circle will allow you to centre yourself. If you focus on the symbol on your forehead, you can channel the energy you wish to receive.
