Each and every piece from the Gydja jewellery collection has a true meaning or inspiration from the Icelandic heritage. It is inspired by either the Icelandic national costume, the Viking runes or the Icelandic magical staves.
Icelandic magical staves are symbols credited with magical effect preserved in various grimoires dating from the 17th century and later. The effects credited to most of the staves were very relevant to the average Icelanders of the time.
