Oak Leaf Torc - Medium Braid
"The Fairie folk
live in the oaks,
and the acorn will
bring you good luck"
- C. Austin
According to Celtic mythology, the first ever tree was an Oak named Bile. From this tree fell two acorns that rooted deep within the Earth and later became the God Dagda and the Goddess Bridhid. What better way to honor Bile than to wear a neck ring decorated with its leaves?
The Oak Leaf Torc is constructed with a medium braid of wire, and is approximately 5/16 inch (8 mm) thick. It is available in bronze or sterling silver.
Oak trees were sacred to the ancient Celts. The Druids performed their ceremonies in groves of oak trees, collecting mistletoe from their branches with golden sickles. Oak trees that survived lightning strikes were believed to have been imbued with divine power and were particularly revered.
