Spinning thorn rune guitar pick - sterling silver In the days of Odin's reign, there was a prosperous village which erected a soaring bell tower with a huge silver bell that could be heard for miles. Loki, the prankster god decided to humble these haughty mortals. He stole Odin's silver axe because it was the only thing that would cut the enchanted spinning thorn tree. After severing a single thorn, Loki crept into the bell tower and slipped the thorn into the bell. Orbiting in the bell, the thorn produced hypnotic music that left the villagers in a helpless, ecstatic trance. Before Loki finished ravishing the maidens, stealing the gold, and guzzling the precious mead, Thor arrived. As Loki made good his escape, Thor freed the spinning thorn and retrieved Odin's axe. For many years after this, much to the chagrin of both Thor and Loki, many villagers would annually beseech the gods to return the spinning thorn. The spinning thorn rune is a powerful and empowering totem for all musicians. Will the gift of a Spinning Thorn Rune © guitar pick make the recipient a better player? Does the hand engraving of an esoteric symbol on precious metal allow an artist to access the rythms of the collective subconcious? Can't hurt. ;) All metal is .925 sterling silver.
