Sterling silver fairy.
The Faerie Folk, by whatever name and in whatever form they may be known – fairies, elves, pixies, sprites, fawns, banshees, leprechauns, little people, etc. – can be said to be symbols, ‘manifestations’, of the profound Celtic bond with the natural and the supernatural world (these two worlds being inextricably inter-connected).
Fairies were (and still are to an extent) believed to be metaphysical beings that were often associated with mythological figures or deities of the Celtic religion.
Belief in fairies, however, can be found in both the written and oral traditions of many ancient cultures throughout the world.
