This is genuine water which I collected myself . The trees around the well were ringing and rustling with the sound of the ribbons and little items people had left as offerings. Holy wells are places of popular devotion where people come to pray and leave simple offerings. They invariably tend to date from pre-Christian times, during which they served as a form of natural religion in which the well was held to be sacred.
There are hundreds of holy wells all over Ireland, many of them still in use. They vary greatly in appearance, some are very simple, decorated only with rounded river pebbles, others are highly ornate and adorned with holy statues, medals, pictures, rosary beads, flowers and candles. Many of the wells were famous for their power to heal.
These lovely little glass pendant measure 2.5 cm to top of glass and can be worn alongside other jewelry or by themselves. please note - bead detail may vary slightly. The cap on the little vial is sealed to ensure the contents remain safe. This water is not for drinking and is intended for use as a talisman or amulet only. None of my items are intended for children due to glass and small parts. I will wrap this little pendant carefully and send it gift boxed.
