Michael Michaud Irish Thorn Pendant
The Irish thorn pendant is cast in bronze and accented with white freshwater pearls on a white seed pearls necklace. Measures 16"-17" L (adjustable).
In Irish sagas, plants have magical powers. The elder, rowan and thorn are still planted around houses to keep off witches. In Ireland and the Isle of Man, the thorn is thought to be the resort of faeries, and they are probably representative of the older tree spirits and gods of groves and forests.
