“I know that an ash-tree stands called Yggdrasill, a high tree, soaked with shining loam; from there come the dews which fall in the valley, ever green, it stands over the well of fate.”
-the Icelandic poem Völuspá.

The Nordic Yggdrasil was an ash tree that connected the nine worlds of Norse mythology. Now, our neck ring doesn’t have those kind of powers, but it does feature leaves inspired by those of Yggdrasil.  What better way to honor that amazing tree than to wear a neck ring decorated with its leaves?

Design Details

This Ash Leaf Torc is constructed with a medium braid of wire, and is approximately 5/16” (8mm) thick. It is available in both bronze and sterling silver.

Historical Inspiration

The great ash tree Yggdrasil is central to Viking mythology. Also known as the World Tree, it grew on an island surrounded by the ocean, in the depths of which the World Serpent lay. This ash tree’s trunk reached up to the heavens, and its boughs spread out over all the countries of the Earth. Its roots reached down into the Underworld. A squirrel named Ratatosk ran up and down the tree carrying messages from the dragon Nidhug, gnawing at the roots, to the eagle in the canopy, and back. A deer fed on the leaves of the tree, and from its antlers flowed the great rivers of the world. A magical goat grazed by the tree, and its udders dispensed not milk but mead for the warriors in Odin’s Great Hall. And the gods held their councils under the canopy of their guardian tree.

This torc is available in either bronze or silver, measures approximately 5/16 inches (8 mm) thick in the medium-braid style, and is handmade in the USA. This necklace is the perfect gift for a lover of Celtic mythology and mysticism, or to add to your own collection. It’s sure to become a treasured piece in your wardrobe and to pass down to generations.
