The Brooms of Elder is a complex symbol that is actually made up of five - the pentagram, the broomstick or besom, the leaves of elder, the blackberry vine, and the circle. Each of these symbols has a deep historical and cultural meaning and what is below just touches the surface of each one.

Elder was a sacred tree to the Druids and it was believed that a powerful spirit named the Elder Mother lived within the tree. Elder is believed to have protective properties, with the ability break spells cast against you or to undo evil spells. 

The pentagram is a symbol of the mystical number 5, which can be found in many living things, like starfish, flowers, or the human hand. For Wiccans, who follow an earth-based spirituality, is represents the four elements of our world - earth, air, fire, and water - plus spirit. To wear a pentagram means you feel a connection with the elements and respect the earth and our natural world.

The broom is a symbol of the union of masculine energies (the phallic handle) and feminine energies (the birch used for the bristles is thought of as having a feminine energy) and is often used as a tool for cleansing and purifying a space before a ritual.

The blackberry vine, which wraps around the circle in this pendant, was considered sacred by ancient peoples. Blackberry vines were thought to have magical healing properties and could protect against evil.

The circle is a universal symbol that represents wholeness, totality, eternity, cycles, and feminine energy.

In this pendant, the subtle placement of the elder leaf branch at the center becomes a point of interest in the design, which is otherwise symmetrical.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants.
