I have 3, all home-made. My first one is a set of acorns, the second one is pine wood, and the latest one is made of chestnuts (Anglo-Saxon runes). Oh, and I've inherited one, made of wood (ash, I think?), but it was bought in a shop.
I have a set of amethyst ones, a set of Lapis Lazuli ones, and a half done set of silver ones I'm making from metal clay. Those are all Elder Futhark. I also have a set of obsidian witches runes, maybe they are onyx now that I think about it....
I have made mine out of pop bottle tops! I have the reg. Runes, Dream-stones, crows-tones, Tao stones, and now ready to start a dragon rune set as well! I store each set in their own glass jar... and I "throw" them into a Christmas type shallow bowl/platter type container.
I have an adventurine set that I bought in 94 or so. The gold has long since come off of the rune images, and a couple of them have broken and been glued back together. They're in the same little goatskin bag I bought for them back then. They worked very well for me, but I retired them out respect - if I was that beat up, I certainly wouldn't want to work too often!
The next oldest is a set I made out of oak slices. I painted them red and used a wood burner. The Laguz rune got lost in a move, though. Those live in a little ceramic crock awaiting a replacement for Laguz.
The newest is a moss agate set in a bison tobacco pouch.
And those are all my Elder Futhark sets.
I do have Chronata's Crowstones, and her Hallowstones. They work great! I don't really think if them as runes, though. They're full images, albiet tiny.
And a set of Witch's Runes in amethyst. Those are almost like a reduced Lenormand, you can see the Lenormand influence.

I have a set of yew wood runes I got from Tara Hill Designs many years ago and a set of bone runes I picked up in a local shop. I have been considering getting silver rune dice from Badali Jewelry for a while, but I haven't done it yet.
Sadly I don't have the dexterity or fine motor skills to create my runes from scratch for myself but my set are holly wood created by a lovely lady on Ebay called Greenwoman crafts. The symbols are pyrographed (wood burnt) on to the beautifully sanded wood.
The Crow stones I saw on the link you put up, very much remind me of the lenormand system, stars, sun, moon, letter, snake, etc. Are they the same system just in a stone format in stones instead of cards?

wildrosespeonies: I decided I'm gonna do a Celtic Cross spread this year. Not sure why, but it my mind is telling me it's Very Important. Not sure which deck to pull though. Torn between two.
Jan 17, 2019 20:57:06 GMT
HOLMES: are you reading for others or yourself ?
Jan 18, 2019 3:10:04 GMT
wildrosespeonies: For myself. I'm deciding between Darkness of Light or Sassy Burito tarot. (I'm sorry, but that is the best nickname for a tarot deck.)

wildrosespeonies: A blizzard is an excuse to clean (esp since I got called off work) and I got rid of a ton of mail that had been piling up. Some of it dating back to... 2011.
Jan 20, 2019 0:22:14 GMT
wildrosespeonies: I did do the Celtic Cross reading with Sassy Burito, and I got dragged. But overall a positive reading. I just have make a few changes. Daydream less, live more.
