In Irish mythology, the hero Bran mac Fiobhall takes off on a journey to the Otherworld, the land of mystical beings. While there, he spies a silver branch with golden apples upon it - and when the branch shakes, the apples sound like tiny bells ringing. In some Druidic and bardic magical traditions, the silver branch, or bell branch, is used in ritual for dual purposes. The sound of the ringing bells is said to be pleasing to the gods - it shows them that someone is about to pay them tribute. On the other hand, the bells are said to drive away malevolent spirits, keeping them out of the sacred ritual space. You can make a silver bell branch with just a few basic supplies - including a branch: Silver Bell Branch
