What do the runes mean?

These are "life and death" runes. I use this combination as a reminder that we all live and also die. Not much is taught about mourning within Western culture and I find it an important part of ritual practices to be aware and to have an understanding of life and also death. They are Algiz runes.

All wood working at Oreamnos Oddities is done from scratch and by hand. We make all our items from the ground up and never purchase pre-made wood cuts for ours designs. Each item is created on site, is hand sanded and all finishing work is also done by hand.

The bones used at Oreamnos Oddities are all ethically sourced. We never buy bones to re-sell which means everything for sale is limited, found while hiking and each and every one is cleaned and processed by hand. It is important to us to honor these animals within Pagan rituals and to harvest naturally as we want all of our ritual pieces to be created with good intention.

All designs engraved within the wood are all done entirely by hand. You will never find laser engraved wood working from Oreamnos Oddities. Since most of our pieces will be used within ritual we want to keep every item involved and create every aspect of it by hand. In doing so we believe the God's will thank us and this will further your skill within your own ritual practices. It is important when purchasing ritual tools that they are created in this way rather than mass produced. Being made of naturally sourced items is also important which is why we choose to work with beeswax, bone and wood primarily.
