Ash + Axe has created a range of forestwear inspired by the ancient folklore, including this handcrafted English Ash and silver chain.
Ash trees come with healing properties in British folklore. A teaspoon of ash sap became a popular remedy suitable for newborn babies. In some villages, the locals made a cleft in an ash tree or sapling. Weak or ailing children were passed through the cleft (Simpson and Roud 2003). Binding the tree afterwards helped it to heal as the child healed. In some places, the child grew protective of ‘their’ tree.
This Ash once grew on a Medieval site in Essex adding to its mysticism
The pendant comes with a sterling silver 16" chain and is presented in a brown gift box.
