mistletoe pin by Michael Michaud

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Designed in collaboration with the Cleveland Museum of Art, this mistletoe pin has beautiful freshwater pearls set in hand patinaed bronze on french wires from Michael Michaud. Mistletoe was a sacred plant to both the Druids and the Norse. According to Norse myth, when the god Baldur was killed by a mistletoe arrow, his mother Frigga wept white berries which brought him back to life. The mistletoe was then blessed by Frigga so that whoever stood beneath it received a kiss. The Druids collected mistletoe by cutting it with a gold sickle, catching it in a cloth before it could hit the ground. The sprigs were placed over doorways to protect the dwelling and bring blessings.
