Apple Branches!

I got my hand on some very nice-sized apple branches, dried and ready to go! I’ve a fair number of them, and inspiration is a-brewing! Apple-wood pendants, rune stones, and wands soon to come!

A bit if information on apple lore:

In folklore, apples and their  wood are associated with love, healing, and longevity. In Celtic mythology, an apple branch bearing at once buds, flowers, and fruit (also known as the “Silver Branch”), was said to have magickal properties, allowing the bearer to enter the realm of the Gods.

In Scandinavia, apples are  eaten to obtain immortality and wisdom, the wood is also used to make amulets promoting longevity.
