Each and every piece from the Gydja jewelry 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.
Viking runes are ancient symbols used for writing, telling fortunes, protection, and casting spells. Each symbol is not only a character in the ancient Scandinavian alphabet but is also believed to have magical or super- natural powers
Thurisaz symbolizes a force of defence and destruction. It also symbolizes instinctual will, self-empowerment and a tendency to change.
