The Elder Futhark runes are split into three aettir. Each is a subset of the runes that is associated with a different god and each of the runes have a different meaning or significance.
The rune of Fehu symbolizes two branches which grow off of a tree, or two horns of a cow. The literal meaning of "Fehu" is "cattle", which in the past was a clear representation of a family's wealth. Debts could be paid in cattle, and each man had a blood-price that could only be paid in cattle if they were killed unjustly. Even if one did not tend and own his own cattle, part of the tribe's or clan's cattle was thought to belong to them depending on their status -- a bard, for example, was thought to have a blood-price almost equal to that of a king. Cattle were both a measure of value, and a means of exchange -- much like 'money' is used today. It corresponds to the letter F in the Latin alphabet.
Our craftsman makes these in Sherwood Forest using a piece of sun glass to burn the runes into the surface of real antler and then seals the surface with bees wax. The antler rune is then hung on a thick real leather brown cord which fastens with a system that allows you to adjust the length of the necklace to your preferred length.
