We are delighted to have been able to source a few more brooms which we've crafted into very special creations!
This is a full size, totally useable broom, as practical as it is beautiful.
She started her life in France, where they still make brooms in the traditional way. I give them a beautiful quartz crystal point top, and then inscribe magical symbols onto the shaft with pyrography. She's been decorated with magical ribbons trailing down, and silver toned charms.
You can choose the symbol you'd like and what colour ribbons, and we will craft this just for you when you order - we aim to have them out the door within 10 days.
The besom/ broom is the quintessential symbol of the witch. This full size version can be used to ritually sweep your altar to prepare for workings, to invoke the powers of “spring cleaning”, ushering in positivity and sweeping away negative energies. Brooms are associated with oaths, and "jumping the broom" was a traditional method of sealing an oath - often used in wedding rites to consecrate a "year and a day" commitment (at the end of which the couple could choose to part, or commit to a handfasting).
The straws from a witches' broom are also used as a spell component in spells related to oaths, promises and protectiction. A broom at the door is thought to ward off ill omens - if it falls over suddenly, some see this as a sign a visitor is about to appear.
These photos are representative - these pieces are hand-crafted and no two are exactly alike.
