This is the rune Dagaz, which means day. It represents daylight, clear vision, safety, and hope. During the day, when you can be seen clearly, things are often less sinister or threatening. Even if they are not, at the very least you can get a clear assessment of what you are up against. This rune can help remind you to overcome ignorance, see through deceit, and face the world with the hope that comes with a new day.
Ancient Traditions: Ancient style for the modern age.
I love how these new Ancient Traditions pendants turned out. They truly look like something that would have been made and used a millennium ago. I have paired them with timeless and evocative symbols. Wearing one of these pendants feels like connecting with your ancient roots.
To make this pendant, first I sand-carved the symbol onto a pebble, physically etching the design into the stone. I used that pebble to make the pewter-casting mold. The pendants feel natural, solid, and substantial, without weighing you down.
• Handcrafted in USA.
• Hand cast fine pewter pendant with adjustable black cotton cord.
• Approximately 5/8" wide and 7/8" tall and 1/4" thick.
All CelticKnotWorks pieces are proudly handcrafted in the USA. This pendant is my original design, designed from scratch by me. I make these pendants in partnership with my family business, Deva Designs.
I've been wearing my dagaz necklace almost daily for nearly two years now. I'm not a "runes person", but I discovered the meaning/symbolism of this particular rune at a time of personal healing, when I needed the daily reminder that each day is new and different and yesterday doesn't have to linger. This pendant has been perfect for this journey. I put it on every morning and remind myself that no moment is forever, to not take for granted the good experiences & that the bad times will pass. That I have clarity of vision & can be confident in how I interpret the world around me.
I never thought when I bought this that I would wear it this regularly for this long. The pewter pendant has developed a slight patina in places since it sits against my skin most of the time (see photo), but it is a sign of quality craftsmanship that it has stayed solid & whole. Its weight around your neck is just enough to feel when you think about it, but fades into the background easily. Even the black cord has lasted this long, which is surprising since I am not always kind when the adjusting knots catch a stray hair. It's a piece you can trust to wear on a regular basis, that will stand the test of time & wear. The value easily matches the price.
