The Tree of Life is a concept that's been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things - the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane - the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.
This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Non-tarnish, sterling silver plated wire (made in the USA) encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree. This tree is bare of leaves and features a large yellow jade round "sun" behind the branches. It warms up the piece reminding me of high noon on the Solstice.
The pendant measures approximately 1.5" in diameter not including bail. Chains available as option from drop-down menu above.
** Exact pendant pictured has sold. YOURS WILL BE HAND MADE UPON RECEIPT OF ORDER and will have a little bit of natural variety in it - just like a real tree! - making it beautifully unique. Please see "Ready to ship in" time notice in the shipping tab.
I've long made "night" versions with various Full Moons, but I wanted to celebrate the bright warmth of a sunny day in this piece. The color is so sunny and happy, it's a little bit of wearable sunshine!
Whether as a gift, or for yourself, this, unique, signature piece would be a great addition to anyone's jewelry collection.
The Tree of Life is known by many names such as the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil from the Garden of Eden; Yggdrasil, World Ash Tree, Odin's Gallows, Thor's Oak; Axis Mundi, the Navel of the World, the bridge between Heaven and Earth, the Cosmic Tree, Ashwath Vriksha or Banyan Tree, Jian tree, Sacred Fig, Bodhi Tree - all of these are representations of the same theme. From Norse mythology, to Christian, Gnostic, Jewish and Hindu religions and traditions the Tree is also found in sacred texts including the Kabbalah, and dates back to pre-Christian myths of Germanic and other European people. The imagery appears in myths of Russia, Greece, China and more! It's truly a universal symbol.
