Wheel of Hecate/Strophalos of Hekate pendant in copper
Wheel of Hecate / Strophalos of Hekate pendant.
Hecate or Hekate is a goddess in the ancient Greek pantheon most often shown holding a pair of torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She was variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, light, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, ghosts, necromancy, and sorcery. The strophalos, or Hekate’s Wheel, is one of the most powerful symbols available for honoring the goddess Hekate and practicing witchcraft.
Individually handmade every one will be unique, it's been heat treated to glowing red and then quenched in water from the North Sea so the recessed portions are naturally darkened with the metal oxides that form under intense heat. Then lacquered to protect the finish. Each measures a little under 3cm in diameter. Will be fitted with a copper ring and set on an adjustable cord, supplied in a velvet gift bag with owners certificate.
Each is handmade and totally unique. No two are the same. The photograph is an example only. All items are made to order. On request we will send you photographs of your particular item prior to dispatch for your approval.
Copper and its alloys; bronze and brass, are natural materials with proven anti-microbial properties and although we can make no claims, some say anti-inflammatory effects useful for joint pain.
Unless otherwise stated your piece will come coated in a tough invisible transparent lacquer to protect the finish however over time and depending on how its treated this coating may break down. As such, depending on your body chemistry and atmospheric conditions this piece may leave a harmless greenish deposit on the skin. This is easily washed off and can be minimized by keeping the ring clean and dry or lacquering/waxing it yourself
