Beautiful and intricate, Mr. Lang.

Impressive enough for me to spend some money.

Thank you for the heads-up.

Below is what the Wolf's Hook symbol means to us, and will accompany all numbered limited edition rings sold through the CoS Emporium.

Wolf’s Hook, Wolf’s Angle

This is the 13th rune of the Elder Futhark (the oldest known set of runes).

Runes are occult symbols, mysteries representing the yet unknown.

As with the Celtic ogham and the Greek alphabet; most runes are associated with relevant trees.

The Wolf’s Hook represents the Yew tree (Yggdrasil - The World Tree). It connects the three Norse realms; the heavens or consciousness, the humanity or life, and Hell or death. It’s shape (when on its vertical axis) connects all three, with roots in Hell, branches in the heavens and the crossing point ( or balance point) in the human realm. Like the arms of the Baphomet, one up, the other down (as above so below) both proximal ends connecting the human element. The synthesis of opposing forces in a balanced environment; communication between the extremes.

Much of the Wolf’s Hook symbology is derived from the fundamental properties and uses of the Yew.

It is the longest thriving European tree, mostly found in undisturbed lands - such as graveyards; hence the 13th rune’s association with longevity and protection of the dead.

Yew was the wood of choice for the making of the Norseman’s ominous longbows, due to it’s flexibility and strength. In it’s day, the longbow was a most feared and awesome weapon; and when in the hands of a skilled archer, made available the ability to kill, and thereby protect, it’s own from afar. The longbow itself represents the potential energy (tension) contained within the Wolf’s Hook. One’s own ultimate potential, stored and waiting for the skill and discipline of one (pushing the limits of their own personal power) to release this potential resource and focus it into their own kinetic creative force; and to do so, one needs balance.

The 13th rune has long been known as the death rune. Again this relates back to it’s association with the Yew tree. The bark, leaves and berries of the Yew are extremely poisoness, bringing on death when ingested. It’s sap, the tree’s life force, a deep red color; and when cut, resembled a bleeding body. And let us not forget the awesome death rendering longbow, made from the wood of the Yew tree. For a magician, the Wolf’s Hook can be used as a powerful archetypical symbol during a curse (destruction) ritual.

In summation, the Wolf’s Hook symbolizes creative potential, extremes in natural balance, discipline and strength of will, protection and longevity, curse and death.

And now here it is in sterling silver surrounded by the trapezoidal Oroborus, Jormungand.

40 Ounces?

Pardon me, but is this correct Magister?

2.5 Pounds seems bloody heavy for a ring.

The Wolfshook ring is now available on CoS Emporium.
HS!

Further....

I'd like to let you know the process as to how each ring is made. This is not a fast process and the rings are not mass produced therefore you will need to be patient while waiting for your order. Know now that your ring will be completely unique. Here is a brief description of the process as written by Magistra DeMagis.
HS!

How each ring is made:

Each ring is formed using the artistic lost wax method.

Lost wax method or casting is an ancient process dating back thousands of years to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. It is still the best method for capturing exquisite detail in metal objects, which could not otherwise be produced given the complexity of their design. This process allows anything modeled in wax to be recreated fully and faithfully into various metals.

A wax original model is created of the sculpture. Care must be taken to capture the smallest of detail; all details and features the artist desires in the finished piece must appear in the wax model. The wax model is then encased in liquid rubber which, once set, is carefully cut away to provide a “negative.” Molten wax is injected into this cavity, which is allowed to cool. It is next removed from the rubber mold in the form of the original. After careful inspection, the new wax model is covered with plaster of Paris and fired. The heat melts the wax, which trickles out through a tiny opening and is thus “lost.” All that remains in the plaster is a perfect hollow in which every surface detail of the wax model is captured. Molten high quality silver is then poured into the plaster mold. Once the silver has sufficiently cooled, the plaster mold is broken apart, revealing your beautifully detailed Wolfhook ring. The ring is then cleaned and checked to ensure that every detail of the original has been faithfully reproduced in silver. A blackening agent is applied and the ring is polished to the desired effect. Next, jeweler’s enamel is baked on for a finish that will never wear away and nicely frames the rune. Finally, the piece is hand polished and numbered.

This process is lovingly time consuming, but worth the wait. Please expect 8-10 weeks delivery, although we will make every effort to shorten this wait time, as we understand your excitement and anticipation.

Thank you so much for creating this! I ordered mine in a size 15 (I have very large hands) about five minutes after getting the Emporium email!

I look forward to wearing this with Pride!
