Yarrow Skulls Obol
When souls departed to the underworld they were carried across the river Styx that separated the mortal realm from Hades domain by Charon, the Ferryman. His fee was one Obol, and so a coin was placed on the eyes of a corpse to pay Charon's fare and give safe passage for the deceased soul into the underworld.
These Bonearrow Obols are made of Sterling Silver, more than enough to cover your journey, and come on either an 18 inch or 16 inch chain.
Known as 'The Witches Herb' and 'The Devil's Nettle' Yarrow has long been associated with witchcraft and magic. Traditionally used for healing wounds as well as reducing inflammation, digestive disorders and even reducing anxiety, this herb isn't so much baneful as magical! I had to include this herb in the Poison Path because it has a history of appearing in so many potions and magical recipes. Though Yarrow has a bad rap (just like us witches) it actually is a wonder herb and sounds deadly from it's nicknames alone.
This necklace will be handmade to order in my Nottingham workshop and will take up to 2 weeks to make, from you placing your order to it being shipped out.
